Okay so I investigated that to try and understand what's going on.
We are definitely writing the OUTOMEM bit to V3D_INTDIS just before
scheduling the workqueue, and never re-enable the IRQ when leaving
early in the workqueue because !vc4->bin_bo.

It turns out that what saves us here is vc4_irq_postinstall being
called from runtime resume at "the right time". Obviously this is more
than fragile, so we should really be re-enabling the IRQ as soon as we
have the binner bo allocated.

Since we're now allocating at the first non-dumb bo alloc, I think we
need to make sure that we did in fact get the irq and registered the
allocated BO with the workqueue before submitting the rcl. Or does the
hardware provide any mechanism to take that off our hands somehow?

What do you think?
