Does anybody know if Mesa compiled by emerge has is compiled with the Cell driver on PS3s? Shouldn't there be a ps3 USE flag for those packages with patches out there for them? Similarly, this is a long shot, but I guess there isn't a patch for mplayer-ps3 included with emerge's mplayer?

I've heard a lot of people talk about mcpu=cell starting with gcc 4.3 providing a substantial speedup over, say, mcpu=970, but I never saw any numbers to back that up. Anybody?

The cell driver is only for Gallium3D which is experimental and probably not what you want to be using.
