It could definitely build up a plan a la weston, it just doesn't atm. > > > >> - I *think* we also need the same trick for combining mixers under one > >> CRTC > >> for 4k modes too? > > > > This one I guess you can't get around though.

Right. Large fbs might require 2 pipes, and multiple overlapping or adjacent small fbs can be serviced with 1 pipe. > Not sure that weston or drm-hwc is > going to have much hope in being able to deal with that, so I think > virtualizing the planes and crtcs is the better route. Agreed. I think kernel is in the best place to make these decisions.
