SubjectRe: [PATCH 2.4.29-pre1] radeonfb: don't try to ioreamp the entire VRAM [was: Re: [Linux-fbdev-devel] why does radeonfb work fine in 2.6, but not in 2.4.29-pre1?]

I see you point, but users see that their video board does not work if
the system has 1GB (or more) of RAM and they aren't happy.
With current VM split (ie. 1GB/3GB) and with that much RAM there's no
space left to map the entire FB. And AFAIK VM hacking in 2.4 is not
doable (not that I would be able to do it ;)

What about this one:


Make fb layer aware of the difference between the ioremap()'ed VRAM and
total available VRAM.
smem_len in struct fb_fix_screeninfo contains the amount of physical
VRAM (reported to userspace via FBIOGET_FSCREENINFO ioctl) while the new
field mapped_vram in struct fb_info contains the amount of VRAM actually
ioremap()'ed by drivers (used in read/write/mmap operations).
If mapped_vram is not set it's assumed that the entire framebuffer is
mapped, thus other drivers are unaffected by this patch.
