Benchmarking Intel's UXA vs EXA

There's been a lot of development with regard to Intel's new UXA acceleration framework for its GMA integrated graphics chips. Benchmarks over at Phoronix have shown mixed results, so I decided to run some tests myself.

Tests run on an Asus Eee PC 900HA, with a 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor and integrated GMA 950 graphics, gtkperf 0.40, default Debian kernel 2.6.30, Xorg 1.6.2, and Intel driver 2.7.1. (i.e., an up to date unstable installation.)

So it looks like I'm sticking with EXA for now. If you have any tips as to boost either of these numbers, do let me know.
