I am very interested in DRM modesetting. Are there any plans to migrate radeon or radeonhd modesetting code to DRM? Are there plans to make a DRM-modesetting based kernel framebuffer driver? It would eliminate a lot of headaches in the graphics system for people using both the console and X. It would also be a step closer to a unified, X-independant graphics system.
I would work on this myself, but without better documentation, DRM looks like a very confusing prospect. Hopefully the new docs AMD is releasing will help some, but I wish the DRM architecture itself were better documented.
