Hi all,

Sorry I'd wish I could reply the original thread but I wasn't subscribed at the time... This is about https://freedesktop.org/patch/34068/

Some more people have been hitting this issue and I understand the review of the patch is complicated, but at the same time Jonas' patch have been reported to fix the issue by quite a few people apparently.

This patch hasn't been merged yet, is this because it is not correct or is it just that it might be incomplete or not optimal?

If the latter, could we consider merging Jonas' patch as a first step, possibly leaving the bug opened until a more complete or better solution is found? Taking an incremental approach to the problem might be better than status quo.

Could we move forward with this, even if the patch is not perfect (assuming it's not broken or causing havoc, of course)?
