2013-05-31uvesafb: Clean up MTRR codeAndy Lutomirski1-0/+1
The old code allowed very strange memory types. Now it works like all the other video drivers: ioremap_wc is used unconditionally, and MTRRs are set if PAT is unavailable (unless MTRR is disabled by a module parameter). UC, WB, and WT support is gone. If there are MTRR conflicts that prevent addition of a WC MTRR, adding a non-conflicting MTRR is pointless; it's better to just turn off MTRR support entirely. As an added bonus, any MTRR added is freed on unload.

2007-10-16uvesafb: the driver coreMichal Januszewski1-0/+193
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.
