I don't think we even need a flag -- just have the kernel report that
the previous buffer is now idle and leave the new buffer ready to go.
I'd love to finish this stuff up and get something working the way we
want; right now, drivers are starting to *quad* buffer to get
faster-than-vblank running without tearing, and that's just wrong.

keith.packard at intel.com
