It means the contents of vram are gone or unreliable. In that case
applications need to re-initialize all of their buffers before
submitting any work. You really need to add GL_robustness support to
any applications you care about. Whether vram is lost or not depends
on the reset method and the asic. E.g., soft reset of a specific
engine won't cause a loss of vram, but a full adapter reset or an FLR

There were a few issues that caused problems with GPU reset. The
biggest was that the GPU scheduler deadlocked in certain cases so if
you got a GPU hang, the driver locked up. That should mostly be
straightened out at this point. I think there may still be some
deadlocks in the modesetting code after a reset. Once that is sorted,
it will come down to fine tuning the actual reset sequences. Full
adapter resets are the easiest to get working reliably (and are
already implemented in the driver), but also the most destructive.
