I think that's dangerously mixing HiZ data validity models. There are 3
basic aux data validity models that we've thrown around:
1) AUX is always correct.
2) AUX is correct within a render pass and invalid outside.
3) Track whether or not AUX is valid and resolve only as needed.
So far, our initial enabling strategy has been (2). We can move to (1) or
maybe even (3) with layout transitions, but that's not what we've done so
far. Your suggestion is to mix in a little of (1) because there is a bug
in our implementation of (2).
I'm Ok, for gen8+ HiZ, with moving to (2) eventually since gen8 is capable
of sampling with HiZ. (Maybe we can even move to (3).) However, that's
not where we are right now and I don't really want to start mixing mental
