I think EXA on 915/945G is mature than EXA on 855G, as Eric and I
fixed some component alpha render issue, but I haven't taken those
fixes right into 855G code yet. And I'm doing EXA support for G965 chips.

Driver support for EXA is still not ready for now, but I hope to fix
those artifacts in near months.
