Sure, but nothing prohibits user-space to ignore the syncing thinking
"It works anyway", testing those drivers where the syncing is a NOP. And
when a driver that finally needs syncing is tested it's too late to fix
all broken user-space.

Then I'd vote for prohibiting it, at least for now. And for the future
moving forward we could perhaps revisit the dma-buf need for syncing,
requiring those drivers that actually need it to implement emulated
coherent memory which can be done not too inefficiently (vmwgfx being
one example).
