At least one of the jumps is expected, because this is around turning
off the CRTC for DPMS off. Don't know yet why there are two jumps back
though.

Which is of course the idea of Daniel's patch (which is what I'm getting
the above with) or Mario's patch as well, but clearly something's still
wrong. It's certainly possible that it's something in the driver, but
since calling drm_vblank_pre/post_modeset from the same places seems to
work fine (ignoring the regression discussed in this thread)... Do
drm_vblank_on/off require something else to handle this correctly?
