Yes, disabling tiling fixes both problems. On the other hand, disabling tiling
causes that back buffer nor depth buffer is tiled. In the previous versions of
the driver, these two buffers were tiled.

But if you fix the tiling, it would be great.

Btw, you commented somewhere in the driver, that i915 chipset is able to
compress only Plane A, if I understand correctly. But on laptops with i915GM
is only Plane B used usually, so the compression cannot be applied?
