More feedback from Intel RC: EXA crashes fixed

I've done some more testing of the latest git sources of the Intel
driver with our I845G graphics chips.
EXA now works without crashing in all my testing :) Great work.
Things which previously didn't work:
- opening many applications, including gecko-based things
- running xcompmgr
- switching Enlightenment-0.17 to the XRENDER backend
All of these things now work. Unfortunately they all run slower (
considerably ) than XAA. In particular, E17 animations ( eg animated
backgrounds ) drop frames far more than with the software engine. In
previous testing on an r200 card with EXA ( just before the modular X
release ), I was getting 2 - 3 times *better* performance doing the same
testing with EXA & XRENDER vs XAA & software.
Anyway, as usual ... not complaining ... just reporting :)
