If the component alpha flag on the mask (pMask->componentaAlpha) is set,
then you need to do component alpha blending with it. If you could
manage to do that with via hardware in one pass, congratulations, you've
got features that aren't in radeons, r128, 3dfx, sis, mga, etc.
If the component alpha flag isn't set, then you have to pull out the A
channel of the ARGB mask and use that like you would have used it for A8
mask. I've heard that gnome uses this to have render do
premultiplication. Take your ARGB8888 unpremultiplied data, create one
PICT_x8r8g8b8 picture for it ("src"), one PICT_a8r8g8b8 picture for it
("mask") and composite. We've actually got fast paths in fb code for
