One problem here that is specific to glyphs is that the server does
not use currently Pixmaps for the glyphs, (instead it uses chunks of
system memory), so no EXA acceleration is possible for the font

I'm currently working on a patch to make the server use Pixmaps for
glyph storage which I hope to be able to share soon. Then we'll be
able to see if that helps.
