SubjectRe: [PATCH 4/6] drm/v3d: Drop the wait for L2T flush to complete.
I'm surprised this made such a big difference. It should not take a
long time to flush the L2T -- no memory access should be involved, it
should just be a matter of the L2T iterating over its lines clearing
the tags. This should take thousands of V3D cycles, not milliseconds.
So the 3-4ms stall seems worthy of more investigation to me.

A comment describing why no waits are necessary would be good.
