I've searched all morning, but I don't get it. The only place the (changed)
pll_table[] gets used is lx_set_clock(), and this doesn't return anything at
all. lx_set_clock() gets told which dotclock to configure and it does its best
to comply, but it doesn't report back, which clock it actually was able to
select. So how on earth can changing this table cause fbcon or lxfb to decide
for a completely different videomode?? Without the patch it seems to use the
special 1200x900 OLPC DCON mode. With the patch it looks like it switches to
some 800x640 mode. No idea where this mode might come from.

And why does the lxfb init take place 20 sec later with the patch? Is there
some initrd manually setting a different mode? Is this offending 800x640 mode
maybe not coming from the kernel, but from some startup script via "fbset" and
"/etc/fb.modes"?

I don't have an OLPC, so could you please run "fbset -i -v" with and without
my patch. Hopefully this gives some clues...

I have also attached a cut down version of my patch. It still adds all the PLL
settings for < 25 MHz dotclocks, but it no longer supplements the > 25 MHz
clocks with intermediate steps. I'm only guessing here, I don't see what big
difference this would make, but still ... could you please give it a try if
you have time?
Thanks a lot for your help.

Regards,
Jens Rottmann

lxfb: extend PLL table to support dotclocks below 25 MHz
Extends the PLL frequency table of the AMD Geode-LX frame buffer
driver to make use of the DIV4 bit, thus adding support for
dotclocks between 6 and 24 MHz. These are needed for small LCDs
(e.g. 320x240).
