For the rendering work, I want to do a sum up of the work in previous several months.

1)Based on the "No icon bug fixed" work from Mart, we bring all the "return FALSE" condition from lx_prepare_composite to lx_check_composite

2)When the pMsk is not zero, we need calculate opWidth and opHeight based on the maskX and maskY

3)A special condition for no variable to record the one pixel source's width and height, return to X server to handle

4)Use PictOpClear to make other non-blending region to be black if the op is PictOpSrc or PictOpClear

5)Fix the PictOpOver operation and correct the progressbar and scrollbar rendering bug using PictOpOver

6)Fix the PictOpOver and PictOpSrc rendering bug when srcX/srcY is negative or greater than source

7)glyph rendering performance

> Greetings,
> Just a brief message to inform everyone that we now have a release
> candidate for the Geode 2.11.9 video driver for X.org. [1] Please test
> it extensively and immediately report any significant regression
> directly into the X.org Bugzilla. [2]
> This particular release focuses on fixing rendering regressions and on
> bringing our codebase in line with current X.org best practices. This
> time, most of the attention was given to the LX component of our
> driver. Meanwhile, the GX2 component of our driver, while still in a
> usable state, would require some attention to perform the same type of
> upgrades that we did on the LX component. This will probably be our
> main focus for the 2.11.10 release.
> This release also marks the return of AMD to the development of the
> Geode driver, following a two-year hiatus resulting from the
> unfortunate departure of Jordan Crouse due to random attrition at AMD.
>  Thus, I'd like us all to welcome Hunk Cui and Frank Huang from AMD
> China to the X.org team!
> Kudos also go to Mart Raudsepp for mentoring Hunk and Frank into the
> Free Software development methods, as well as to Michel Dänzer and
> Jonathan Martin for answering their difficult questions about the
> intricacies of Pixman.
