I just wonder what the heck all these will do to testing when using any of
these drivers. Whether or not we do no yield, mild yield or full blown
expiration yield, somehow or other I can't get over the feeling that if the
code relies on yield() we can't really trust them to be meaningful cpu
scheduler tests. This means most 3d apps out there that aren't using binary
drivers, whether they be (fscking) glxgears, audio app visualisations or
what...
