It is and it is not. What I mean is concerning comment 17 "So i did a git log
--graph --oneline --all and started to git checkout between those two commits,
starting from 2d2f1fd to de92b7a are bad and with commit "ef557ea
winsys/radeon: disable virtual memory on Cayman" it started working."

If the variable "RADEON_VA" is not set or doesn't exist, from the point commit
"ef557ea" kicks in, VM gets disabled. Before that commit, VM is always enabled;
from that point, we must be careful. If we want to test after commit "ef557ea"
with VM enabled, "RADEON_VA" MUST be set, otherwise it will be disable and will
hide the bug.
