    Default Kernel Mode-Setting Driver Comes To VirtualBox

    Phoronix: Kernel Mode-Setting Driver Comes To VirtualBox

    It looks like an upcoming advancement to Oracle VM VirtualBox is support for a kernel mode-setting (KMS) driver...

    KMS would seem to put VBox one step closer to a possible Gallium3D pass-through driver, unless I'm mistaking things. Either way, even for 2D this sounds like a nice development.

    Very cool. It's based on my glint KMS driver from GSoC 2010.
