Ok, sounds good. Pop over to http://nouveau.freedesktop.org/wiki/ and
look at what they are doing. For the linux kernel, you are interested
in the DRM component. You should read this link:

http://people.freedesktop.org/~ajax/dri-explanation.txt

which explains what each component in the linux graphics pipeline does.

Also have a look at this link:

http://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/MesaDriver

Hope that helps you.
