I have screen tearing when using the scfb driver. It's the only Xorg display driver that I can use with my laptop computer. Double buffering is a programming technique to prevent screen tearing.

I suggest you talk to upstream about implementing double buffering in scfb.

Upstream can be found here https://github.com/rayddteam/xf86-video-scfb
