Great news! I just repost the above patch
(http://marc.info/?l=linux-ia64&m=131412890819311&w=2) and it should
be merged into mainstream by Tony Luck.

I forgot (once again!) one important thing: I was running glxgears
synchronized to the vertical refresh, hence the mere 85 FPS in
average. Running glxgears not synchronized to the screen refresh, I'm
now getting 1700 FPS! With such "high" framerate, GPU acceleration is
probably running fine :-)
