[VR] Particle Systems cause "task.rasterData.indexBuffer == NULL" error and lead to graphical glitches

XR

-

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new project
2. Enable VR
3. Create a particle system
4. Enter playmode and put it in your HMDs view
5. If error doesn't show, repeat Stop / Play of playmode again. (when doing this i can repro it with the MockHMD)

Result: "task.rasterData.indexBuffer == NULL" error in the console and potential graphical glitches

    No - upgrading to dx12 does not resolve the issue - it just takes a while before it shows

    The memory leaks are especially intense for particles that use mesh renderers (up to 100 MB per particle system in our test). This can easily cause the application to try to allocate more memory than is available and crash the user's PC.

    Note that these memory leaks appear specific to DX11. Upgrading our project to DX12 appears to have eliminated the leaks, although we'll have to test more to be sure.

    Major blocker for VR development. I need to restart Unity every 3 times I press play.

    This issue is horrible, I need to revert my project back to 2018.2 and this will take some time.
    Not only Unity 2018 is slower than 2017, but 2017 is also slower than Unity 5.6 and 2018.3 is zillions times slower than 2018.2! Every version performance gets affected a lot, what's going on Unity?
    Directional shadows suffered a terrible performance bug (I'm seeing 30-40% slower) in 2017 and 2018. Again, whats is going on?
    If this keeps going on, I will skip my Pro version till they get fixed. Stop focusing too much on services, your services worth nothing if no one uses your engine at first.
    From now, I will skip all 2018 versions till 2018 hit 2018.4 / LTS. See ya in the future.

    This bug is taking a serious toll on our project development. We are a small indie team and this kind of major bug really harms our opinion of Unity as our game engine of choice. We waited until after the beta to avoid this kind of issue, and there's no workaround. Please, please fix this bug ASAP!!
