Hm, yes and no. Only different in a sense that currently igt_fb leaves 
object tiling at linear regardless of the fb modifier tiling. (Apart for 
the legacy X where it requires that they match.)

I needed a way of having Y tiled fb modifier and Y tiled object to hit a 
warning in i915_gem_object_get_fence when only the rotated view exists.

Patch series is probably to invasive anyway, especially I did not spend 
any time evaluating if 2/3 is safe. So hopefully Vivek can refine his 
version of the testcase which would then be completely confined to
