TTM, Radeon KMS Support Goes Into Linux 2.6.31
Phoronix: TTM, Radeon KMS Support Goes Into Linux 2.6.31
Last week a pull request went in to bring support in the Linux 2.6.31 kernel for Radeon kernel mode-setting and TTM memory management. This initial work was proposed to enter the Linux kernel as a staging driver and then be setup as a proper Linux kernel driver in the next release, Linux 2.6.32. Linus Torvalds has criticized some of this Radeon kernel mode-setting work since there are some known bugs at this time (though at least it wasn't called untested crap), but nevertheless he went ahead and pulled in this new code prior to Linux 2.6.31-rc1. Cheers! There is now Intel and ATI Radeon kernel mode-setting support within the Linux kernel...
