I wholeheartedly agree with this sentiment!

I'd like https://patchwork.freedesktop.org/patch/108076/ to be at least
considered. It allows eliminating tearing with PRIME slave outputs in a
way which is both simpler and more efficient (at least WRT inter-GPU
bandwidth) than the recently added *Flipping* hooks, and saving
inter-GPU bandwidth also when allowing tearing. I can write a
modesetting driver implementation of the SyncSharedPixmap hook, if that
My only other outstanding change is
https://patchwork.freedesktop.org/patch/70477/ , but I don't care too
much about that anymore, because our drivers already do the equivalent
thing if Xorg itself doesn't. :)
We should also definitely figure out if
https://patchwork.freedesktop.org/patch/94495/ is still needed / the
proper fix, but I guess that can wait until after this week.

This looks quite aggressive, but no objections from me.
