[ubuntu-x] Test kernel for perf issues on -intel

On my system (eeepc 901, intel i945gme) intel drivers 2.6.x are REALLY slow
with both UXA and EXA.
I've tried different driver/kernel versions.
Intel drivers 2.6.x + kernel 2.6.29 + EXA = still slow, plus video garbage
when opening new windows/menu in kde
Intel drivers 2.6.x + kernel 2.6.29 + UXA = X server freeze at login
intel drivers 184.108.40.2063 + jaunty kernel + EXA = still slow
intel drivers 220.127.116.113 + jaunty kernel + UXA = still slow, but more stable
than 2.6.x (no crashes so far)
intel drivers 18.104.22.1683 + kernel 22.214.171.124 + EXA = seems a little faster
intel drivers 126.96.36.1993 + kernel 188.8.131.52 + UXA = way faster (i'd say
intrepid levels, still not as smooth as hardy IMHO), seems stable (no crashes
so far, kwin dekstop effects on. Kwin effects are very smooth, while with
default jaunty config they are so sluggish that I have to disable them). Uxa
also brings dri2 to my system.
Mandriva is tracking 2.7 drivers so maybe you can have some collaboration with
them, since jaunty and 2009.1 are releasing in the same period.
