            Bug ID: 105316
           Summary: vsync in Vulkan applications doesn't work correctly
                    with both radv and amdvlk
           Product: xorg
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: x86-64 (AMD64)

The tearing may not be overly easy to spot and of course xorg compositors with
vsync should be disabled.
Using compositors with vsync or the TearFree option help as workarounds, but
aren't optimal.
Vsync in OpenGL applications works fine with RadeonSI on the same system
without workarounds.

Like stated on the amdvlk GitHub tracker, AMD developer davidmaoamd assumes
there there is a connection with using copy for present, which would explain
why radv is only affected in windowed mode and amdvlk in both windowed and
