I'm relying on the workqueue for committing the async part of
non-blocking commits to serialize things.  This was actually something
I pretty badly need for msm (otherwise pageflip + dirtyfb causes races
for settings various FLUSH/START bits which need to happen in a
certain order)

This was what killed my earlier lazy plan of handling dirtyfb in drm/msm ;-)

handles this, I guess they'd have the same issue..
