So, to increase your chances of getting all this upstream, I recommend
consolidating these two patches (the one here at #11529 and the other at
#10151) into a single "stream" of git commits. The first commit in the stream
should be the introduction USE_MEDIALIB in the build process (these two patches
do so in slightly different ways, BTW). The next commit would be a single
application of medialib, with the corresponding speedup. Then another single
application with speedup, etc, etc, leaving out any applications that cause

I think this is all I've got to say about this medialib saga (#11529 and
#10151). As long as you're 1) not causing any regressions 2) you have measured
significant performance benefits and 3) your patches are in a logical stream of
git commits, you should have a good chance of convincing Soeren to accept your
contributions. When you're ready, you might want to fire off an email to the
list with a subject of something like 'pixman patches, please review' to get
Soeren's attention.

I'm done. Hope I've been of some help. Good luck (I have to disappear for the
next week or so).
