Incorrectly rendered demo

On Gen7, and prior the following commit:

    anv/cmd_buffer: Pull the core of flush_state into genX_cmd_buffer

the Sascha Willems vulkanscene demo was rendering correctly. Now however, a gray oval is rendered in the middle of the demo.

Comment 1 Nanley Chery 2016-03-09 21:32:30 UTC
With further testing, I've determined that a number of demos besides vulkanscene are affected.
Comment 2 Jason Ekstrand 2016-03-09 22:19:25 UTC
Turns out that the problem is that calling cmd_buffer_config_l3 isn't safe to do when rendering on gen7.  We need to fix that.  Re-assigning to Jordan.

I just pushed a band-aid patch that doesn't actually solve the problem but does get it back to working as well as it did before:

commit 41af9b2e517dd0c17e519490ca915b96f6898390

    HACK: Don't re-configure L3$ in render stages pre-BDW
    This fixes a "regression" on Haswell and prior caused by merging the gen7
    and gen8 flush_state functions.  Haswell should still work just fine if
    you're on a 4.4 kernel, but we really should make it detect the command
    parser version and do something intelligent.

I've tried (unsuccessfully) to reproduce this on
two Haswell systems.

I've had a similar problem with the vkcube demo (https://github.com/krh/vkcube) on my MacBook Air HSW :


I wonder whether that's the same issue.

Interestingly enough the cube demo from https://github.com/LunarG/VulkanTools.git works.

Jason had a workaround patch to fix this previously, but
hopefully it is fixed without the workaround as of
