It would be useful if some people using Nvidia, intel or EXA based
drivers could compare the results of the test app attached to this
mail with and without XShm. A test on ATI fglrx is not useful at this
point because it doesn't use an EXA-like architecture yet and they
don't accelerate XRender in hardware yet.
