Actually we found that it's faster to turn that acceleration off, since
it's not really accelerated --- it'll be a memcpy either in domU or in
qemu, and you might as well skip the (slow, synchronous) emulated
register writes that domU would use to drive the blitter.

IIRC, the Citrix Windows drivers installer sneakily turns acceleration
off on the Cirrus driver's settings.
