uvesafb: the driver core
uvesafb is an enhanced version of vesafb. It uses a userspace helper (v86d) to execute calls to the x86 Video BIOS functions. The driver is not limited to any specific arch and whether it works on a given arch or not depends on that arch being supported by the userspace daemon. It has been tested on x86_32 and x86_64. A single BIOS call is represented by an instance of the uvesafb_ktask structure. This structure contains a buffer, a completion struct and a uvesafb_task substructure, containing the values of the x86 registers, a flags field and a field indicating the length of the buffer. Whenever a BIOS call is made in the driver, uvesafb_exec() builds a message using the uvesafb_task substructure and the contents of the buffer. This message is then assigned a random ack number and sent to the userspace daemon using the connector interface. The message's sequence number is used as an index for the uvfb_tasks array, which provides a mapping from the messages coming from userspace to the in-kernel uvesafb_ktask structs. The userspace daemon performs the requested operation and sends a reply in the form of a uvesafb_task struct and, optionally, a buffer. The seq and ack numbers in the reply should be exactly the same as those in the request. Each message from userspace is processed by uvesafb_cn_callback() and after passing a few sanity checks leads to the completion of a BIOS call request.
