upon further testing how it performs in the three different scenarios, video
is definitely worse with the 2.6.35 patched kernel and even worse with
with a 2.6.39 kernel.

With the patched kernel it seems playback starts playing fine but after a while
it gets
that blockiness I told you before.

BTW, I am running the latest xorg release candidate, but mesa 7.9.2.
I didn't notice any difference at all between all the xorg releases I tested,
whereas with mesa 7.10
playback gets worse than with 7.9.x compiled without llvm, gles or gallium.
With 7.10 playback is unchanged by any of these.
