The problem is that this would break i915 userspace afaik, which I think
is using a frontbuffer page flip to flush out uploads (and re-enable self
refresh and stuff like that). So that we can't do easily.

Why would you stall on something unrelated if we unconditionally fish out
the fence? Especially cursor rendering isn't done through the gpu at all
afaik.
