Firstly, please don't take this as a complaint - just a report back.

I've just managed to install the exa-damagetrack branch and test it out.
I enabled the AccelDFS option ( though I read that this is enabled by
default on PCI Express cards, which I have ).
I'm still not really getting any better performance than with XAA. For
example, if I set a firefox window partly transparent, it takes about 7
seconds between rolling the mousewheel and the 1st scroll operation to
complete and render.
