I checked that this does fixup the glamor framebuffer to be marked as
!cache-coherent so with this we stop trying to write into it using the
WB mapping. With the always use LLC for reads patch applied, there isn't
a noticeable penalty for glamor on llc from a brief 2 minutes of looking.
If there are, those will need to be fixed for !llc platforms anyway, so
the more the merrier?
