can you file a PR about this?  i don't see the problem on a
750 or 730 cards.  i don't have anything newer yet.  (well,
there's a 9x0M in a laptop, but i haven't managed to get any
drm to find the video bios for that one and work.)

there are likely some dtrace methods we can use to find the
leak you're seeing, but it might be good to keep it all in
the PR :)
