Dave and Marek,

Do either of you guys plan to implement support for this extension?  The
value to developers is obviously increased if more drivers support the
extension.  This extension was born from feedback that I received from
people at FOSDEM and from various game developers at Game Developer
Conference and elsewhere.

I'd like to land this extension, and I haven't received any review.  I
know you guys are both pretty busy, so I don't expect detailed reviews.
 I would really appreciate a quick skim of the extension spec (patch 15)
and an Acked-by or two.
