Does this work if the renderer paints the whole surface regardless of
damage? Rpi-renderer does that, since every surface is on its own

The whole damage tracking is kind of unused on the rpi-renderer, since
the firmware will probably redraw everything anyway. Prohibiting damage
will not prevent parts of a surface from being painted. Damage is just
a hint saying what is not necessary to repaint.
