    compositor: Fix GL_EXT_x11_sync_object race condition · 9df6cda3
    Aaron Plattner authored
    The compositor maintains a ring of shared fences with the X server in order to
    properly synchronize rendering between the X server and the compositor's GPU
    channel.  When all of the fences have been used, the compositor needs to reset
    one so that it can be reused.  It does this by first waiting on the CPU for the
    fence to become triggered, and then sending a request to the X server to reset
    the fence.
    
    If the compositor's GPU channel is busy processing other work (e.g. the desktop
    switcher animation), then the X server may process the reset request before the
    GPU has consumed the fence.  This causes the GPU channel to hang.
    
    Fix the problem by having the compositor's GPU channel trigger its own fence
    after waiting for the X server's fence.  Wait for that fence on the CPU before
    sending the reset request to the X server.  This ensures that the GPU has
    consumed the X11 fence before the server resets it.
