Alright, I'll begin to rework the patches for the 4.11-rcX tree this week. That said, I will not port the Mali's fbdev interface patches after this release. Meanwhile, I'll try to see if I can run KMS ( DRM ) enabled terminal emulators directly on the MiQi, in order to avoid using fbdev completely in normal cases.
The reasons being:
- Kernel level support for fbdev is fading compared to DRM, which can do everything that fbdev can and beyond.
- Maintaining a DMABUF like patch for fbdev is now kind of useless.
