My summary of the issues after talking to Jerome and Ben and
re-reading things is:

We really need to work out a better interface into the drivers to be
able to avoid random atomic entrypoints,

I'm sure you have some ideas and I think you really need to
investigate them to move this thing forward,
even it if means some issues with android sync pts.

but none of the two major drivers seem to want the interface as-is so
something needs to give

My major question is why we need an atomic callback here at all, what
scenario does it cover?

Surely we can use a workqueue based callback to ask a driver to check
its signalling, is it really
that urgent?
