            Bug ID: 89772
           Summary: xf86-video-ati-git unstable
           Product: xorg
           Version: git
          Hardware: x86-64 (AMD64)
                OS: Linux (All)
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: Driver/Radeon
          Assignee: xorg-driver-ati at lists.x.org
          Reporter: john.ettedgui at gmail.com

after Michael implemented DRI3 I was excited to test it, but the latest git
makes my system quite unstable (even with DRI3 off).

The easiest way for me to test this is to start a game with nine. I am not sure
why but on bad xf86-video-ati-git alt-tab within the game restarts the whole
Xorg (I'm guessing it crashed and was auto-restarted).

I've bisected it, and the result is quite surprising to me but...:

af1862a37570fa512a525ab47d72b30400d2e2d6 is the first bad commit

    Always include misync.h before other misync headers

    Older versions of xserver didn't include misync.h from other misync
    headers as needed.

Before this commit I don't have stability issues.
(I've been using xf86-video-ati-git for a while and never had issues till the
batch of DRI3 patches came in).

I have a R7 280x, on Linux 4.0-rc4 and Xorg 1.17, mesa-git and llvm-svn.
