video tearing, the poster child of bad abstractions

It's been a thorn in my side ever since I learned about the problem
doing VGA graphics on a 386.  The solution is simple (use double
buffering) but for some reason it persists into 2017 simply because of
the towering abstractions and their inability to abstract this

The mess we're in :)
