Note that it's normal for this ioctl to be called every time before the
GPU accessible pixmap memory is accessed by the CPU. Unless the ioctl
always returns an error, this may not indicate a problem on its own.

I don't see any obvious problems in it. Can you describe the symptoms of
the problem you're having with X a bit more?

One thing I notice is that the X server/driver are rather oldish. Maybe
you can try newer versions from testing, sid or even experimental to see
if that makes any difference.
