Intel's 2D Performance With X.Org Server 1.9

Starting with JXRenderMark, which stresses the X Server's RENDER extension, the transformed blit linear test at 128 x 128 had improved a great deal with Intel's driver stack between xorg-server 1.8.2 and current 1.9 code.

The transformed blit bilinear operation was also much faster with X Server 1.9.

In the radial gradient paint test in JXRenderMark and many of its other tests there was not much of a change in performance for the Intel driver/hardware when swapping out the newest X Servers.

With the X Render Gears test found in QGears2, there was not any major change in performance for either better or worse when upgrading to xorg-server 1.9.
