No, reference images are made by the image backend. These are manually
compared to the output of the base compositor which are generated using
the test-base surface and stored as test/reference/*.base.*.ref.png

The reference images are changed whenever we change the algorithms (and
for tracking external factors) since they almost always introduce some
sampling variation and we use a zero acceptance tolerance for the image

For a1-bug, pixman-0.24.0-32-g46fc4eb using mmx/sse2.
