    Default atombios question

    Anyone knows what "AtomBios teardown" function is for ?

    Looks like it frees up the atombios-specific memory allocations -- copy of bios, scratch area etc...

    I haven't checked the calling code but I imagine it's called as part of the general teardown when the driver is being shut down.

    Thanks for answer, I was hoping it's some kind of inversed asic_init, to unPOST the card.

    Basicaly having a card that detects as being posted (checked with reading some values off MMIO) and it's not (and wasn't) really posted. So I want to unpost it before passing to driver.

    There is no way to "unPOST" a card per se.
