Ok, so it's only touching pixmaps at least.  If we add privates API to
allocate private screen space, then we can change the modesetting driver
to use that and it will then re-use the same space at each
re-load. Other drivers could migrate to using the new API as they liked,
but not doing so wouldn't hurt this project any.
