Enabling KMS makes performance a bit better, though according to Thomas,
it comes with bad colors. To enable KMS, you'll need this in
option i915 modeset=1

Remember that KMS requires an up2date intel driver with UXA enabled to
work. KMS enabled will not work with non-KMS drivers.

I'll update xf86-video-intel, mesa and everything that's related to this
to the latest branch snapshots. This should improve some things, though
I have no hard results for it yet.
