Reminiscing: Remember the time we had all those vblank workers patches,
one of which was to do async gamma updates (apply the last one on the
vblank). Motivated by gnome-shell and the ilk doing a gamma animation
for fade-out on logout (which I guess they gave up on since it happened
to be so slow as to extend logout ;).
