drm/i915: announce to userspace that the bsd ring is coherent
Daniel Vetter [Sun, 5 Dec 2010 10:30:40 +0000 (11:30 +0100)]
Otherwise we can't really fix the abi-braindeadness of forcing
libva to manually wait for rendering when switching rings. Which
in turn makes implementing hw semaphores a pointless exercise
(at least for ironlake).

[Also added the relaxed fencing param to explain the jump in
numbering - relaxed fencing is in -next.]
