Ok, I have now confirmed that there is no problem with tearing if you run
mplayer with -nodouble. That seems to confirm that there is no inherent tearing
problem with the radeon driver's double buffering.

So I guess this bug is really that the errata fix slows down video to the point
that many movies fail to render at a reasonable speed. But I don't think we have
a fix that everyone is satisfied with?

Out of curiosity, is there a way to do mplayer's double buffering properly?
I.e., can you check if the pixmap you're about to overwrite has been copied yet?
