Well I'll have a very close look at the proposed ioctl interface on
top of these fence fds to make sure it's sane. But it will come that's
pretty much for sure. And similar fence integration will very likely
happen in the modeset world with acquire/release fence/syncpts around
atomic updates and for vblank events. The modeset integration will btw
not require any driver changes, at least not the release fences.

And like Maarten says we'll keep that working together with implicit
syncing for the Linux Desktop ...
