Ah, I thought there was another issue with X left unresolved.
Comment 4 Florian Mickler 2011-01-29 16:55:17 UTC
Indeed. The original report was about a hard freeze and the issue solved by the above Patch was only _thought_ to be related.
Comment 6 Chris Wilson 2011-02-01 10:22:17 UTC
I think this is related to bug 27862 and the same 3 patches (drm-intel-fixes 9334ef755f060e251f3f395caeda1a58b6834ea3 and ddx 3e28a0c0b43823d3104fe8fc50b5994b41fc0cc1 c6dc27562abbc8ca9e873ad502ca49ae010461d2).

In particular,

    drm: Don't switch fb when disabling an output

    In drm_crtc_helper_set_config, we call drm_crtc_helper_set_mode which
    may return early and do no operation if the crtc is to be disabled. In
    this case we merrily swap to the new fb, discarding the old_fb believing
    that it has been cleaned up. However, due to the early return, the
    old_fb was not presented to the backend for correct reaping, and nor was
    the new one - which is about to be reaped via the
    drm_helper_disable_unused_functions(), leading to incorrect refcounting
    of the pinned objects.
