In theory yes, in practice that is non-trivial. The amount of data you
need to keep track off is in the MBs, it can range from any previous GPU
command stream sent to the GPU, to the contents of any of the vertex
buffers etc.

the problem with GPU lockups is you don't notice them until after you've
queued up a tonne more stuff since they are such deep pipelines.
