No, the radeon-rewrite branch (which has been merged recently)
wouldn't change anything, as it doesn't support R6/700. If it's
happening with 2D, it's not a problem with Mesa anyway -- unless
you're using compiz, then it may be.

Yes, XAA is also available.

More info such as kernel, drm, xserver, and ddx versions might help.
Does dmesg or Xorg.0.log show anything interesting when the corruption
happens? What kind of corruption are you seeing?
