Though "OK", sub-optimal loosing pageflip on tonga, as a vsync test
fails top 5% of screen unless I force GPU perf high.

Not related to this patch directly of course, but I am a bit surprised
that on auto powerplay the tonga is too slow to make 60Hz.

Tested with CPU forced high, so it's not CPU freq.
