Almost the exact same thing happens with the Radeon fb driver as well -
I have just tuned into this version as far as development goes (I
haven't even LOOKED at kernel source code in ten years, so I'm pretty
lost!) - but it appears to me that at some point during the 2.5.x tree,
a lot of the structure in the base framebuffer code has changed
drastically, and the nVidia and Radeon (among perhaps others) driver
code hasn't been updated to agree with it.
I'd be willing to do some work on the Radeon driver - does anyone know
of a document hiding somewhere on the web, or in back issues of LKML
that documents exactly what changed, and how to accomodate for it in the
other FB device drivers?
