Since everything is now synchronized on vsync events thanks to the
atomic modeset infra (including plane/crtc disable requests), I think
the problem I was trying to fix at the time no longer exists (might
re-appear if we start supporting async plane disable requests which is
anyway not supported by the core). So I think I'll just apply your
patch.

Thanks,

Boris
