Well since we have no real primary plane we'd have to remove support from every plane or add elaborate logic to atomic check that detects and rejects a configuration that has pixels blending from nothing, which presumably is what triggers the display artifacts. >> The VC4 HVS >> has no fixed planes so I'll acknowledge that the concept of a primary plane >> is somewhat dubious and userspace could disable it or make it not cover the >> entire screen, making this ineffective. >> >> But then ultimately there doesn't seem to be a standard for what the display >> is supposed to be if you have transparent pixels with no plane to blend to >> below. > > The standard is black. IMO it's a driver bug if it fails to do that. Then to be sure we should always enable the background fill. Maybe Eric can clarify what the cost for this is, all I have to go on there is the comment on the register set.
