glamor asserts when hotplugged: ../dix/privates.c:384: dixRegisterPrivateKey: Assertion `!global_keys[type].created' failed
When glamor is loaded during
InitOutput, it successfully allocates pixmap and gc privates, which it then uses across all screens. It can reuse these keys later if a screen is hotplugged. However, if glamor is initialized as part of a hotplug, then trying to allocate generic privates fails and causes the server to abort:

In my case this happened because screen 0 (the dGPU in my laptop) is using the NVIDIA driver and GPU screen 0 (using the iGPU) was using modesetting, but I can also reproduce the problem if I configure screen 0 to use the modesetting driver with
Option "AccelMethod" "none" to disable glamor.
This situation doesn't occur for the first X server that's started: both screen 0 and GPU screen 0 are initialized during
InitOutput. But trying to start a second X server on a different VT causes the GPU screen to be initialized as a hotplug, during
