This. I thought that, to trigger uploads, we just had to change the domain
on the buffer.

least) for buffer uploads as buffer dimensions (eg 64k by 1) mean they
usually can't be bound as render targets.  So we need to jump through some
hoops to get a hardware upload path in the absence of a DMA engine or
