Fix for GNOME 3.24 animation stutter/lag with Nvidia

After the May 12th stable update my GNOME desktop’s animations began to noticeably stutter and drop frames. The problems seem to stem from the latest update to mutter.

The issue appears to be relatively widespread on hardware using Nvidia proprietary drivers.

Someone on the Arch forums made a patch to revert the offending code to its previous state. Instructions to apply the patch can be found here: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1707028#p1707028

The patch completely resolved the stuttering and frame rate drops on my system. This is only a temporary solution. Hopefully the underlying issue will be resolved soon by the upstream devs.

I wonder if this could be the cause of Gnome core dump on my Nvidia stable machine, never seen a crash until this morning after update.
