Thanks Daniel for the review.
Agreed, will drop dirty_fb flags unless someone has any objection.

I think the best is to suggest user-space to not send overlapped rects. But
as someone earlier suggested it is hard or I should say unnecessary check
to enforce this in driver.

Agreed implementation in modesetting and Weston and for kernel part as
I read in another mail dirty_fb implementation is also a good use-case.
