The only one who clears it up is AMDGPUFreeScreen_KMS.
The magic (for this and the other 'leak') seems to be happening in xf86platformAddDevice. Namely: - ::platformProbe is called via doPlatformProbe - the driver explicitly calls xf86AllocateScreen, yet fails later on - back in Xorg, the "if (old_screens == xf86NumGPUDrivers)" is false - ::PreInit fails, ::configured is false - xf86DeleteScreen() gets called, which dives into ::FreeScreen (aka AMDGPUFreeScreen_KMS) Eventually, I could unwrap all that although it makes sense to keep things simpler. As effectively done by the patch. I believe you'll agree? -Emil _______________________________________________ amd-gfx mailing list email@example.com https://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/amd-gfx
