Since this thing needs driver side changes anyway, I think we should aim
for simplicity in the driver side. So perhaps something like this:

xf86XVFillKeyHelperPort (DrawablePtr pDraw, pointer data, CARD32 key,
                         RegionPtr clipboxes, Bool fillEverything)
    XF86XVWindowPtr WinPriv = GET_XF86XV_WINDOW((WindowPtr)pDraw);
    XvPortRecPrivatePtr pPriv;
    RegionRec reg;
    RegionPtr fillboxes;

    while (WinPriv) {
	pPriv = WinPriv->PortRec;
	if (pPriv->DevPriv.ptr == data)
	WinPriv = WinPriv->next;
    if (!WinPriv)

    if (!pPriv->ckeyFilled)
	pPriv->ckeyFilled = RegionCreate(NULL, 0);

    if (!fillEverything) {
	RegionSubtract(&reg, clipboxes, pPriv->ckeyFilled);
	fillboxes = &reg;
    } else
	fillboxes = clipboxes;

    if (RegionNotEmpty(fillboxes))
	xf86XVFillKeyHelperDrawable (pDraw, key, fillboxes);

    RegionCopy(pPriv->ckeyFilled, clipboxes);

    if (fillboxes == &reg)
