Bug detailed description:
Glbenchmark 2.5.1/2.7.0 render error(white screen) with gnome-session enabling SNA on IVB/HSW. The problem doesn’t exist on Raw X(xinit&) or without SNA.
Please see scrot picture and Xorg.0.log.
It’s mesa regression, bisecting show c the first bad commit:

The problem could be reproduced by 1 in 10 runs.
Comment 4 Kenneth Graunke 2013-07-05 16:37:01 UTC
Fascinating.  Sounds like another problem Eero noticed that we probably can't talk about here.  Probably the same root cause...
Comment 5 Chris Wilson 2013-07-05 16:41:24 UTC
Are you sure it is not just a missing InvalidateNotify, which itself would be a race condition?
Comment 6 meng 2013-07-08 00:24:26 UTC
When white screen, performance would "rise"(211.00fps -> 363.00fps).
Comment 7 meng 2013-07-24 06:10:14 UTC
The problem also exists on SNB/ILK.

Hi, can you reproduce it ?

Hi Chris, how can I judge "a missing InvalidateNotify"? Or some tools?
Comment 9 Kenneth Graunke 2013-07-25 23:11:26 UTC
Apparently EGL needs the viewport hacks, since it doesn't deliver DRI2Invalidate events due to xcb limitations.  GLBenchmark's EGL builds would be affected.

Given that, I've reverted the commit:

commit 0e9549e2bd57168086421468cbf1db0821c36730
Author: Kenneth Graunke <kenneth@whitecape.org>
Date:   Thu Jul 25 15:11:13 2013 -0700

    Revert "i965: Delete pre-DRI2.3 viewport hacks."
    This reverts commit c9db037dc999eadbcaa8816c814e6ec1776d1a40.
    Eric believes that the viewport hacks are still necessary for EGL;
    invalidate events aren't hooked up properly.
    This commit caused a regression where EFL applications wouldn't show
    anything other than window decorations; GLBenchmark also showed issues.
    The revert had conflicts due to the intel_context/brw_context merge.
