I've looked a few times into the i810 drm kernel driver to clean up various
things all accross drm, and the code in there is horrible. It is so horrible
that you stop caring about race conditions you noticed after reading just a few
functions of code ... :(

Given that, I think the only way to fix this disaster is to rewrite the i810
support as a new, clean kernel modeset driver. That needs a volunteer with too
much time. Hence I'll close this as wontfix. Sorry.
