That's GDM, and so useless unto the purpose. It's not accelerated.

To answer MAS: we don't have working drivers capable of rendering Shell
for any ARM system, to the best of my knowledge. But to slice it another
way, I don't think any current ARM CPU is likely to be powerful enough
to software render Shell at an acceptable speed. ajax would probably
know better than me, though, I may just be blowing smoke.
