I also have been working on de-staging the sync framework, but I've
taken the approach of cleaning up the sync framework first. e.g., I got
rid of sync_pt and use struct fence directly, also sync_timeline is now
fence_timeline and its ops are gone in favor of fence_ops. My current
work is here: 


My current plan is clean up patches, add commits messages and document
the changes I've made and then it should be ready for a RFC.
