Jesse Barnes has put together a proposal much like this to work within
the existing DRM environment. This is pretty much the last piece of
missing mode-setting functionality that we know of, making DRM capable
of fully supporting existing (and planned) devices.
Here's a link to some older discussion on the issue, things have changed
a bit since then and we had a long talk about this during the X
Developers' Conference this week in Chicago. Expect an update to his
proposal in the coming weeks.
