Li, Sun peng (Leo) Sept. 10, 2019, 1:54 p.m.
From: Aric Cyr <aric.cyr@amd.com>

[Why]
There can be some unsynchronized frames when entering/exiting
LFC.  This may cause tearing or stuttering at such transitions.

[How]
Add a enter/exit margin to algorithm to smoothly transition into
and out of LFC without desynchronizing frames.
