Btw. another new problem, which i haven't had time to track down at
all is that desktop composition under EGL seems to be totally broken.
Tested on KUbuntu 16.0.4 LTS with xserver master + mesa master last
thursday with whatever KDE Plasma 5 version ships with 16.04.
Compositing with XRender accel or GLX + OpenGL 2/3 works fine. Could
be modesetting, or glamor, or mesa.

I get sometimes black screen, or sometimes massive corruption with
pixel trash like if it displays random buffer contents from
uninitialized buffers under modesetting-ddx + DRI3, on all kms
drivers. Can anybody confirm this?
