For the time being I try to keep the functionality of Broadcast RGB the same and just port it over to AMDGPU, but i haven't looked into it in detail yet. > >> My vague recollection is that framebuffer was always assumed to be in >> full range, and then if "Broadcast RGB" was set to limited range, the >> driver would mangle the pixel pipeline to convert from full to limited >> range.
