I tried it but was too chicky to use drm-gem. I see two regressions:

1) driver is now slower but it may be relaed to the reverted Carl's patch.

2) framebuffer compression is terribly broken, I got huge screen corruption if
fbc is enabled. If this is one of known regression, maybe the fbc should be
off by default.
