Default ATI Radeon HD 4250 - kernel patch

I was surprised to find this:

http://kerneltrap.org/mailarchive/freebsd-bugs/2010/7/28/6886133

as I recently bought a motherboard with this onboard chipset and just installed 8.1-RELEASE this weekend to find no fullscreen in mplayer (graphics cards are always my problem it seems).

I've built kernels before, no problem. How exactly do I go about patching the kernel with the above referenced patch?

Will I have to CVSup to -CURRENT? Or may I simply apply only this patch?

Will "world" need to be rebuilt?

Following this, will ports need to be rebuilt? (only 486 installed, no big deal )

Thank you in advance.

Some supporting information suggesting the card is X friendly:
