Is that they way it should work, though? I remember a few good years
back, before KMS, there were lots of issues with X server hanging and
not restoring the vt mode correctly. Should it not be that on getting
back control of a DRM master, an application sets it last known good
mode that it had, before it lost (or gave away) control?

Repeating just to make sure we're on the same page: we allow 0 as valid
range value, but writeback_dst_h/w ultimately gets updated before the
commit gets passed on to the driver to use crtc_state->mode.v/hdisplay
so as not to trigger any scaling. Correct?

Best regards,
