Async flip has a harder requirement -- you must use X tiling, both
before and after the flip. Oh, and async flips require a 32KB aligned
buffer, which I'm not actually checking for. Not sure how to

I don't see a requirement for matching stride and tile parameter in the
MI_DISPLAY_FLIP docs for synchronous operations, at least on DevGT+. Is
the common code too restrictive?
