the glamo chip is 3D but there is no driver on openmoko for using it.
due to the way it is connected to the cpu the glamo chip slows the
freerunner *down*. despite the faster cpu the freeruner is ~50% slower
than the 1973. the cpu is blocked during any kind of graphics i/o and
there have been discussions to simply remove it in order to speed the
freerunner up.
