I was really hoping I'd read wrong.  I'm going with "that's a kernel bug".
Modifiers is supposed to separate tiling from the BO.  Tying them back
together in drmModeAddFB2WithModifiers is wrong.  This is especially true
since SET_TILING is an inherently racy operation and we really need to stop
using it entirely.

If what you wrote above really is immutably true, then this patch is dead.

What's the failure mode here?  We just don't flip?  Or the compositor wigs
out and crashes?
