Comment 81 for bug 727594

Bryce, I'm confident that Knut identified the same issue and so disabling relaxed-fencing for the release should fix these as well. (I have lingering doubts since we tried the obvious kernel workarounds, but then again I think we may have a fundamental bug in our allocation ala gen2.) Obviously, if I am wrong, let's open the bug again.

    Turn relaxed-fencing off by default for older (pre-G33) chipsets

    There are still too many unresolved bugs, typically GPU hangs, that are
    related to using relaxed fencing (i.e. only allocating the minimal
    amount of memory required for a buffer) on older hardware, so turn off
    the feature by default for the release.
