Yeah I read the commit message but didn't understand what it's doing.
After some discussion with Alex on irc I realized that the fixup is only
applied in when updating the cursor bo and changing the hotspot to avoid
that kind of flickering. That problem is solved though on the kernel side
with universal planes (where we don't artificially split up the cursor
update into a move + bo-update for the driver interface any more). And
it's fixable in userspace even with legacy cursor interfaces since the
ioctl allows you to move + update at the same time too. It's just that X
doesn't provide that interface to the driver in a useful way.

Anyway, conclusion is that radeon implements exactly the same behaviour as
every other hw driver, with x/y pointing at the top-left corner of the
cursor image (not the hotspot), in CRTC coordinates. I still have no idea
what John is seeing though exactly, and why there's a difference between
rockchip and qxl for him.
