[PATCH v3 0/5] drm: Fix fb changes for async updates




Hello,

This series fixes the slow down in performance introduced by
"[PATCH v2] drm: Block fb changes for async plane updates" where async update
falls back to a sync update, causing igt failures of type:

    "CRITICAL: completed 97 cursor updated in a period of 30 flips, we
    expect to complete approximately 15360 updates, with the threshold set
    at 7680"

Please read the commit message of "drm: don't block fb changes for async
plane updates" to understand how it works.

I tested on the rockchip, on i915 and on vc4 with igt plane_cursor_legacy and
kms_cursor_legacy and I didn't see any regressions.

I couldn't test on MSM and AMD because I don't have the hardware
I would appreciate if anyone could help me testing those.

Thanks!
Helen
