fwiw, an atomic mode set which can update crtc and zero or more plane
layers is, I think, the way to go.  Jesse Barnes had an RFC for this,
although IIRC it was only the API and not the implementation.  And
combination w/ the plane/crtc properties patchset to allow setting
properties as part of the update might not be a bad thing either.
