Subject: [PATCH v4 0/6] SimpleDRM Driver
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.video.dri.devel
Date: Sunday 1st September 2013 13:36:46 UTC (over 4 years ago)
Hi

With the upcoming 3.12 merge-window, I thought people might find themselves
with
nothing to do, so here's a new SimpleDRM series. Comments welcome!

This depends on the tip/x86/fb series in the x86-tip tree:
  http://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip.git/log/?h=x86/fb
Which, as far as I understood, will be pushed into 3.12 by the x86 people.

Patches #1 and #2 implement the SimpleDRM driver which can replace vesafb,
efifb, simplefb, vgafb and more. Just enable the CONFIG_X86_SYSFB option
and
you're good to go.

Patches #3 to #6 implement drm_kick_out_firmware() to make x86 drivers kick
out
firmware-DRM drivers instead of only fbdev via
remove_conflicting_framebuffers().

I tested this based on drm-next plus the x86/fb series merged with i915 and
nouveau and it worked just fine.

Regards
David
