[Xorg-driver-geode] Rendering in geode

	I'll check if our off-screen memory is run out of. Haven't check
the log. Today, I'll use gdb to see what happens in different FB size,
How the off-screen is used in rendering.
	Because the rendering issue in firefox is not a fixed issue, it
appears randomly with refresh button, so that can make sure the memory
use could have some problem. Rendering bug has been fixed by my patch.

If the driver is running out of off-screen memory, shouldn't it log that
at least? I think it's worth investigating, if only to make these type
of problems easier to track down.
