Well, it only changes the exit path, i.e. the changed code only gets
executed when you close a direct rendering client. So if you can restart
openaren (and the Xserver sometimes, too) that would test this code
decently. The locking is imo pretty borked, so don't expect miracles.
Also, I don't change anything of the hw programming, so this won't help
for gpu lockups and similar stuff.
If it works for you, Tested-by for the savage patch highly appreciated.
