BTW, most if not all of these RADEONWaitForFIFO() calls are probably bogus. I
doubt the overlay registers go through the FIFO, but even if they do,
RADEONWaitForFIFO() is useless while the CP is busy, as it would likely fill up
any available FIFO slots anyway.

That's assuming the delays are accurate... which I suspect is rather unlikely,
although in both directions due to scheduling latency and signals.
