-- target_flags
-- @short: Set special frameserver processing flags
-- @inargs: id, flag_val, *toggle* or (max_w, max_h)
-- @longdescr: Some frameserver features and management behaviors that
-- are unsafe to use as a default can be toggled on a per-target basis
-- through the use of this function. The flag argument is used to specify
-- the feature in question, and the optional toggle argument is if the
-- state should be set to on or off (boolean, default: on).
-- The special max_w and max_h argument interpretation is only for the
-- The possible flags are:
-- Optional *toggle* argument is by default set to on, to turn off a
-- specific flag, set *toggle* to 0.
-- @note: flag, TARGET_VSTORE_SYNCH makes sure that there is a local
-- copy of the buffer that is also uploaded to the GPU. This saves a
-- readback in cases where direct access to pixel values are needed.
-- @note: flag, TARGET_SYNCHRONOUS blocks CPU<->GPU transfers until
-- the transfer has been marked as completed. This will stall the
-- rendering pipeline and possibly incur a heavy performance impact.
-- @note: flag, TARGET_NOALPHA manually sets the alpha field for new
-- frames to 0xff. A faster way of disabling (that would require less
-- memory operations) alpha blending for untrusted sources would be
-- to associate the respective VIDs with a shader that doesn't use or
-- lookup alpha value.
-- @note: flag: TARGET_AUTOCLOCK is on by default and provides a
-- standardd implementation for some of the autoclock requests that
-- are then filtered and not forwarded to the eventhandler.
-- @note: flag: TARGET_VERBOSE is off by default. Turning it on
-- will emit additional data about delivered or dropped frames.
-- @note: flag: TARGET_NOBUFFERPASS applies to plaforms where accelerated
-- buffer passing is supported. This can be disabled statically/globally
-- through a platform specific environment variable, and dynamically by setting
-- this flag. The default behavior is to allow buffer passing, but if the
-- graphics (agp) layer gets an invalid buffer, this flag is automatically set
-- to true.
-- @note: flag: TARGET_ALLOWCM allows a client to send/receive color
-- lookup tables for one or several displays. You still need to explicitly
-- specify when- and which tables- are to be sent or retrieved via the
-- ref:video_displaygamma call. The event handler will indicate when
-- gamma tables have been updated.
-- @note: flag: TARGET_ALLOWLODEF allows a client to treat its video buffers
-- in half-depth mode. Similar to TARGET_ALLOWHDR, this means that more
-- advanced features than compositing (accessing / manipulating store,
-- direct-feed share and so on) should be avoided.
-- @note: flag: TARGET_ALLOWHDR allows a client to treat its video buffers
-- in f16-mode. This is an advanced graphics format for working with sources
-- that has a dynamic range. Most graphics applications becomes more costly,
-- compositing multiple sources on a fixed-range display.
-- @note: flag: TARGET_ALLOWVECTOR allows a client to treat its video buffers
-- in vector mode. This converts the contents of its buffers to work as
-- textures, and metadata for specifying content in a GPU friendly triangle-
-- soup format. Like with allow-lodef/hdr, this will not work well with
-- feedtargets or directly accessing storage.
-- @note: flag: TARGET_ALLOWINPUT remaps any _IO events received unto the
-- main event queue rather than being delivered in the normal frameserver
-- bound callback. This allows for semi-transparent controlled IO injection
-- with all the implications that might have. It is only intended for the
-- cases where overhead needs to be minimized over having a forward from
-- the normal event handler to the appl_input(iotbl) one.
-- @note: flag: TARGET_ALLOWGPU allows a client to authenticate a platform
-- specific token that can provide higher levels of GPU access than the
-- implementation defined default. This is a security tradeoff as it may
-- provide the client with access to read or modify private GPU state.
-- @note: flag: TARGET_LIMITSIZE sets an upper limit to the dimensions that
-- the client can negotiate. This is primarily to prevent accidental absurd
-- behavior, such as 8192x8192 sized mouse cursors.
-- @note: flag: TARGET_SYNCHSIZE changes the semantics for the 'resized' event to
-- block the client, pending a ref:stepframe_target call to release. It is not
-- stable to toggle this flag on as the off state can be activated with a synch
-- pending. On stepframe, the next update will contain the new buffer contents.
-- @note: flag: TARGET_BLOCKADOPT prevents the engine from preserving the target
-- on calls to ref:system_collapse or on script-error recovery.
