    I'm sorry, I'm having a hard time understanding you. Perhaps you should spit out all those sour grapes before you attempt to speak?

    This current implementation makes dri3+Present with XWayland/Wayland at the same level of feature/performance than Dri2 under X.

    Likely performance is not to improve soon, but tearings could be avoided when you don't sync with vsync.

    Before performance improves, there would need a new kernel feature to cancel a scheduled pageflip.
    X Dri3+Present would also need such a feature to get better performance, and to avoid tearings when you don't sync with vsync.
