Ok, so there is sufficient space ...

I have again spent some more tries with different kinds of flushes on the rv635.
What helps for the mipmap problem here is emitting a texture_barrier as well 
as flushing anything that covers the whole memory range and more than two
arbitrary color buffers. !?!

Given your comment I have implemented a two alternative flush paths one for the 
rv6xx chips which does just the brutal cache flush invalidate and one for the 
rest which still uses the selective bo flushes.

For my rv635 this works.
Does this also fix 35312?
