Thanks for your help! Just now I uninstalled both libgl1-mesa-glx and 
libgl1-mesa-dri. Now I am using Mesa 7.10.2 produced by Brian Paul and I 
can use direct rendering on my box.

No idea why it works, but the glxgears performance is ~1500 fps. I'll 
try to reproduce the steps and get the log tomorrow. Since I think I 
need to modify it, I really need to know how to make my build work.
