Does the GCE provide any 'lock' to prevent modifying (by adding tasks
to) the GCE h/w buffer when it is processing it at vsync? Otherwise
there maybe race/error. If there is such a 'lock' flag/irq, that could
help here. However, you are supposed to know your h/w better, so I
will accept this implementation assuming it can't be done any better.

Please address other comments and resubmit.

Thanks
