I want to improve rendering speed AND compositing speed too.
If software rendering for ARM920 cannot be optimized, I want to try implement rendering in hardware (FPGA).
So, I need more info about it (rendering, composition, EXA-compatible modules an so on). I trying to step-by-step debugging xserver for investigation about function call tree, but using dlopen() and macro-substitution in xserver slows it.

Thank you for your reply, and sorry for my english.
