Can we get these patches cc'ed to dri-devel so that there's some
common solution? Everyone hacking legacy_cursor_update hacks on their
own doesn't really work well. Or would at least give some visibility
into what's all going on.

Not sure about the gamma thing since we had opposite bugs on i915
about gamma not being vsynced and tearing terribly. Cursor is special
since it tends to be too small to notice tearing.

Thanks, Daniel
