a screenshot of how the fonts look after
setting SQ_LDS_RESOURCE_MGMT register to zero in other applications muddles up font rendering permanently, so permanently that not even X reset, or GPU softreset helped the issue after it happaned.
In order to do GPGPU thing, I need to set this register, so this bug pretty much kills any chance that I do GPGPU and X on the same GPU.

If I set the pixel shader part (lower 16 bits) of the register to 0x1000 in my code, than it works perfectly with X, so this patch should work, but what about mesa?
