That is what I thought, see the commit message. Trying to come up
with a better fix did not get me anywhere.

An alternative solution would be to add a flag argument to
glamor_fd_from_pixmap, so that callers like this one which
know for sure they want a linear bo can specify that through
a flag, and other callers can just pass in:

ppix->usage_hint == CREATE_PIXMAP_USAGE_SHARED

For that flag, the reason I did not do that is because
glamor_fd_from_pixmap is part of the xserver ABI AFAICT.

Is that a convoluted way of acking the patch ?   :)
