My reading of keithp's response was that it should work, but it just
can't.  libdrm using the fake buffer manager tries to use emit/wait irq
for fencing which expects to have the shared lock held.  In DRI2 there
is no shared lock.  I've tried removing the requirement to have the lock
held in drm, only to have X consume 100% cpu and wedge.  I think that
keithp's comment is misleading.
