Subject: [PATCH] drm/doc: Document that modifiers are always required for fb
Date: Thu, 17 Sep 2020 18:47:22 +0200
Message-ID: <20200917164721.2038541-1-daniel.vetter@ffwll.ch> (raw)

Even for legacy userspace, since otherwise GETFB2 is broken and if you
switch between modifier-less and modifier-aware compositors, smooth
transitions break.

Also it's just best practice to make sure modifiers are invariant for
a given drm_fb, and that a modifier-aware kms drivers only has one
place to store them, ignoring any old implicit bo flags or whatever
else might float around.

Motivated by some irc discussion with Bas about amdgpu modifier
support.

Sending this out again to double-check there's no objections or concerns.
From what I understand looking at the code the latest modifier patches for
amdgpu follow this now.

Cheers, Daniel
