Subject: [PATCH] drm/i915: Disable the BLT on pre-production SNB hardware
Date: Thu,  5 Jul 2012 23:49:40 +0100
Message-ID: <1341528580-31291-1-git-send-email-chris@chris-wilson.co.uk> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1341518509-30562-1-git-send-email-chris@chris-wilson.co.uk>

It never quite worked despite the numerous workarounds, yet I still see
people trying to use this hardware and filing bug reports. As we no
longer even try to implement the workarounds, since 6a233c78878
(drm/i915/ringbuffer: kill snb blt workaround), simply disable the ring.

v2: Add a message to inform the user about the limited capabilities of
their pre-production hardware.
