Ok, almost thought so, thanks for the confirmation!

Yeah I guess that is what Marek don't want because it promotes using FB_MXS for longer than needed. I don't care as much since we anyway use the MXSFB DRM driver. However, what I really dislike is that a kernel compiled with both drivers currently leads to MXSFB DRM being unusable (because fbdev gets probed first). I feel removing the MXS_FB is rather harsh, so I *really* would love to see the MXSFB DRM driver renamed. -- Stefan _______________________________________________ dri-devel mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/dri-devel
