Help with Mali / acceleration please

I have have follow the instructions from: http://www.wiki.xilinx.com/Xilinx+MALI+driver

I got the code, applied the patches and built the module.

I have put the module on my system and am able to load the module

 

insmod mali.ko

 

dmesg shows ...

 

[ 4262.518847] Mali<2>:

However when I run my desktop (xfce4) I see no improvement. My crude test is to grab a window and move it around quickly. It lags quite a bit. I'm sure I'm missing a lot. Any help would be appreciated.

 

My system: custom board running Xilinx kernel 4.9 with xfce-desktop installed from the command line

 

 

Side note: I managed to put a rootfs from Xilinx on and the same crude test had the window following the mouse just fine. Same kernel Image and boot.bin used in both cases
