Nice, what did? From your quoted text, I'm guessing not treating the ROM
as an x86 BIOS.

Depends. You'll want to not enable backing store and use Option
"AccelDFS". If that doesn't help, you can try playing with the
"MigrationHeuristic" and "FBTexPercent" options, and if all of that
doesn't help, you could finally try the exa-damagetrack xserver git
