It does read from the destination, and the implementation is pretty
much the least cache-friendly thing one could imagine. fbPutXYImage
works by walking plane-by-plane over the source image and combining
each plane with the destination according to the rop mode, so even if
the equivalent ZPixmap operation wouldn't read the destination (say, pm
of ~0 and rop of GXcopy), the XYPixmap version will.
