Bug detailed description:
start X ,then run Rendercheck test .due to very low performance,it will take more than 5 hours now  but just need 1 hour before.

Reproduce steps:
1. xinit &
2. ./rendercheck -t composite  -o src,over,overreverse,xor -f a8r8g8b8,a8,x8r8g8b8,r8g8b8,b8g8r8,r5g5b5,b5g5r5,x1r5g5b5,x1b5g5r5,r5g6b5,b5g6r5,x8b8g8r8

In exchange for better cpu usage behavior when doing real work, we may have hurt runtime of this regression test.

Very low priority.

Now with the newest code on master branch, on both 945GM and G45, rendercheck/composite passes but it needs more than 7 hours to finish. 
Comment 6 Chris Wilson 2010-12-01 10:34:33 UTC
As I found myself waiting upon rendercheck, I fixed one of the TODOs and reduced the number of round-trips required for result processing. So rendercheck as a whole is significantly faster. However, we still incur considerable slow-down due to fallback ping-pong and there is very little incentive to fix that (accelerating more ops is likely to cause rendercheck to slow down even more...).
