That would be nice indeed!

Two reason that I can think of, we should have mentioned this on the
commit message:
- we have no real user space use case for anything other than cursor
- Ville wants to go down the road of fences per-plane for this, we'd
  want to signal the replaced planes, but not the whole crtc. That is
  of course a optimization on top.

To clarify what this does is do a normal commit if there isn't any
pending commit to amend.

Good point. We kinda missed that.

The fallback on this version of the patchset was my suggestion, we had a
test failing, not sure which anymore, if we did not fallback. Maybe the
test we wrote was wrong! Ugh! Let me revisit this with Enric, fail
instead of silent fallback seems indeed the best approach!
