IMHO it's bad practice to add host to the DISPLAY setting.

1) It makes X clients to use inet socket instead of unix socket
    which doesn't work if you run X server with "-nolisten tcp"
    argument as you should (e.g. Ubuntu doesn't use firewall, so
    without that you've opened a socket to network)

2) On the device local connection is used instead of inet
    one, so your x86 test setup differs unnecessarily from
    the device one.
