This enables DRM (Direct Rendering Manager) support in the kernel for the RX51. This opens up the possibility of using the Weston DRM backend, which in turn allows for DPMS (I hope) and other cool tricks. n900:~# glxinfo|head name of display: :0 display: :0 screen: 0 direct rendering: Yes server glx vendor string: SGI server glx version string: 1.4 n900:~# glxgears 94 frames in 5.0 seconds = 18.772 FPS
Yea.. the performance isn't great because I think they used a binary blob driver for the PowerVR SGX530 graphics.. I guess we can talk about whether or not we want to include this blob here for performance, assuming it even works with the mainline kernel now since it likely hasn't been updated for years. I'm not even sure where you can find it now.
Haha, yea that's probably unrelated since the only things being changed are related to DRM and the LCD panel (not the touchscreen controller). Then again, I had to enable some completely unrelated CONFIG_DRM_OMAP_CONNECTOR_ANALOG_TV option to get omap_drm to load successfully, so what do I know! :P
