Thanks for pointing this issue out. This is something I want to be discussed

There are three types of access to the pixmap:
1. UXA batch command buffer.
2. Glamor through OpenGL
3. CPU access mapped BO buffer.

My understanding is that the leading two types has the queue mechanism and
to be handled carefully. In general, we can treat glamor 's access as
another batch 
buffer. Then in the place where current intel driver need to flush UXA batch
we also need to flush the GL operations there. Right? 

And besides above places we need to flush glamor, we also need to flush UXA
buffer before call into glamor and also need to flush glamor after the
glamor rendering
function really touch the pixmap.

Any comments?
