I guess it's most likely commit 19b01b5fbf0b78930b3b06ee6080539c17b5d1fd
('drm/kernel: vblank wait on crtc > 1') that makes the difference. Without that
commit, the X driver completely disables vsync functionality with your card, as
it can't work on some of the CRTCs.

What I don't understand is why the suggested workarounds don't restore the
previous behaviour... did you leave all of them (disabling page flipping and
SwapBuffersWait — verify in Xorg.0.log that they're really disabled — and
vblank_mode=0) enabled at the same time? Missing any one of them could result
in vsync being effectively enabled.
