Same with UXA and vlc with glx output. No compositor here. I can clearly
see tearing when I connect the laptop to an external monitor to watch

I think there's two bugs being discussed here. One is that compositors
that don't unredirect fullscreen windows may give you tearing. Another
is that even without using a compositor, and even if you render using
OpenGL, you can still get tearing.
