On my Kaveri system, streaming data from CPU to GPU via VRAM is faster
than via GTT both with the integrated GPU and with discrete GPUs.
The following kernel patches make this safe by always flushing the HDP
cache before submitting a command stream to the GPU, and bump the radeon
DRM minor version.
The following Mesa patches check for the bumped radeon DRM minor version,
and if it's satisfied, they prefer CPU -> GPU streaming via VRAM and
relax the restrictions for persistent mappings.
