There was already a bug filed for this but I can't find it. Shmem allocations are multiples of page sizes and with tiling we often would fit exactly a multiple of the page size if it was not for the metadata in the header that causes us allocate an extra page worth of shared memory every time.
Instead of having this header in the buffer (for size, format, etc), we could just place it in the surface descriptor.
instead of being at the beginning of the buffer the info is stored in a regular IPDL-generated descriptor that the TextureClient and TextureHost hold on to. I didn't forsee the patch becoming this big, but turns out we were using (YCbCr)ImageDataSerializer all over the place and the later mostly made sense the way things worked before the patch and got slimmed down quite a bit. I'd like to go further and make ImageDataSerializer disappear to become an implementation detail of BufferTextureClient/Host, but that'll go into followup work.
