It isn't mine. It forces the XV video to use overlay mode (obviously not
on 965 which doesn't have one), as the XAA acceleration would cause
BadAlloc errors when trying to use textured video with compositing.
Comments in the source-code indicate this may be an insurmountable
problem with XAA, in that it can't ensure the texture memory for the
video is in the right place.

It'd be nice to get XV working with textured video, and I guess this is
the case already with EXA.

Wasn't mine.

Clearly you know that wasn't mine ;)
