Not that I can see. (Xorg.0.log attached)

Yes. It's there with r977.

I just noticed :)

In case someone else is trying the driver, here is how:

alpine-netbook:~$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/30-cursor.conf 
Section "Device"
	Identifier "device0"
	Driver "openchrome"
	Option "SWCursor"  "true"

Thanks to you for working on this driver.

I'd be happy to run it on daily basis, as my primary display
driver, but currently it is too slow for that. :-(

What is needed to fix the speed issues? Needs to add support for my
chipset to the kernel drm module? (I know a little C but very little
about xorg drivers. I might be able to figure things out if you point me
in the right direction)
