OK, I tried that.

With stock debian/unstable Xserver the xcompmgr -a got boost of x11perf
-shmput500 from 85fps to 400fps.

With git version from 18th May 2007, I can got about 600 fps using the x11perf
-shmput500, xcompmgr -a does not impost any boost.

Using XAA with any of these two versions of the Xserver, I got 1600 fps using
the x11perf.

Anyway, xcompmgr -a causes that x11perf has some troubles with sync or
something like that as the screen does not get refreshed as fast as without

So, to be honest, I did not try the latest Xserver from git (I have the latest
xf86-video-intel driver), but EXA runs at 37.5% of XAA in x11perf for me.
And I do not know whether x11perf is similar to glxgears - it's not correct
benchmark but I guess that x11perf should be.
