what the acronyms sa and bo stand for?
In the drm source code for radeon, the acronyms sa and bo are very frequently used (for example, in radeon_sa.c) , but nowhere explained. my guesses are
sa = standalone allocator???
bo = buffer object????
does anybody know what these acronyms represent??
from my reading of the source code, I deduce that they relate to memory allocation for ring buffer, but I am not sure.
sa = sub-allocator
