In theory, we should be able to gather quite a bit of interesting
information for analysing deadlines from using perf timechart in
conjunction with i915:i915_gem_request_wait_begin,
i915:i915_flip_request, i915:i915_flip_complete. Just needs a lot more
effort for useful analysis.

I think a clearer picture is forming in mind. Just a complete modesetting

Right looks like the other pipe is just residual values from probing for a
Mind also grabbing a drm.debug=0xe from a sane startup. Aside from a
silliness with attempting to use a HDMI command on a non-HDMI capable

Hmm, I'll send a patch for that at least.
