    r300g: offload the CS ioctl to another thread
    This is a multi-threading optimization which hides the kernel overhead
    behind a thread. It improves performance in CPU-limited apps by 2-15%.
    Of course you must have at least 2 cores for it to make any difference.
    It can be disabled with:
    export RADEON_THREAD=0

RADEON_THREAD=0 or RADEON_DEBUG=notiling solves this bug.

The screenshot is taken without libtxc_dxtn. The corruption is much better when libtxc_dxtn is present, but not completely gone.
