A couple notes:
EXA minor 1.4 means that we require server 1.5 it looks like. I'm not
sure if we're ready for that.
It looks like you won't break XAA+rotation, for what it's worth. If we
can avoid the server 1.5 requirement for EXA, I'd really like to see us
drop XAA at this point. It's not like it really works on newer
hardware, anyway. And if we could unifdef EXA, I'd be even happier --
it really makes a mess of a bunch of our code.
It'll certainly break 965 render accel since it's not using
OUT_RELOC_PIXMAP. cworth's working on getting that ready, but I don't
want to see this patch land until then.
In non-GEM, BO-pixmaps mode, i830_memory.c needs to stop allocating the
EXA offscreen space and allocate that as pixmap space instead (if you
scaled the size down a bit at the same time, I definitely wouldn't
complain -- it should probably be a function of aperture size rather
than screen virtual).
Other than that this seems like good stuff, and I'm glad you wrote it.
Being able to compare EXA and UXA will be very useful.
