I just wonder if it's worth all the trouble, just to clear the fbcon buffer, if the result is that the console output is delayed, possibly indefinitely.  We don't have any other hardware acceleration for fbcon, so its BO is only accessed by the CPU and display hardware after this, and has to be pinned in the CPU visible area of VRAM at all times anyway. -- Earthling Michel Dänzer | http://www.amd.com Libre software enthusiast | Mesa and X developer _______________________________________________ amd-gfx mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/amd-gfx
