So, I think the compositor, much like
drm_atomic_helper_wait_for_fences(), really just sees one fence per
surface, it doesn't really know (or care) that under-the-hood it is a
fence-chain or fence-array.  There isn't really much for the
compositor to do but inform "if possible, I'd like this fence to be
signaled by time T".

Say you have multiple updated frames, which have a fence-array
composed of fences from multiple different rings.  It is up to the
fence provider to keep track of the latest fence and the earliest
deadline.

The drm/msm implementation doesn't try to be too clever and track
multiple deadlines, Ie. fenceA wanted by time1 and fenceB wanted by
time2.  It just keeps track of the nearest deadline and the last
fence.  That is probably sufficient, eventually the utilization based
gpu freq governor will settle into the appropriate steady-state
framerate.

(Although, I did realize that the WAIT_FENCE ioctl should also be
setting a deadline.. I forgot to add that)
