There have been some real features though still: Alex Goins from nvidia implementd[sic] proper sync for page-flipping dma-buf backed framebuffers, benefitting[sic] setups where nVidia renders buffers that the Intel driver displays.

Thanks so much for following my work so closely! It means a lot to see you so excited about the changes.
As you may know, I recently sent out v3 of my upstream X patches: http://lists.x.org/archives/xorg-devel/2016-February/048677.html . It's hard to say how many revisions it will take before they are finally accepted, but hopefully it will be soon.
Once the pieces land in their respective mainlines, and we release a driver to take advantage of it, I'll post here with a recipe for what versions of what software components are needed, if people want to try it out before the bits propagate to their distros.

AnAkkk said:Will this fix Nvidia Prime with Xorg 1.18? This is currently broken and none is able to have a fully working Nvidia-only setup on Arch. It just results in a black screen, or broken menus in applications.
Since PRIME needs to work for this patch to even matter, the issue you're pointing to will most likely be resolved either before or at the same time as this patch lands. In any case, it's hardly related to this thread as it is a separate issue.
