SubjectRe: [PATCH] drm: fourcc byteorder: brings header file comments in line with reality.

I think this is premature. The current situation is that I can't get
modetest to work *at all* on my NV34 / BE setup (I mean, it runs, just
the colors displayed are wrong). I believe that currently it packs
things in "cpu native endian". I've tried futzing with that without
much success, although I didn't spend too much time on it. I have a
NV34 plugged into my LE setup as well although I haven't tested to
double-check that it all works there. However I'm quite sure it used
to, as I used modetest to help develop the YUV overlay support for
those GPUs.

Does modetest work for you, under any interpretation of the formats?

There's an additional complication wrt looking at what fbcon does,
since it will feed the data in via special accel interfaces in fbdev,
which at least on nouveau, may end up byteswapping the data on upload
to VRAM (I'm not 100% clear on whether they do or not). However
modetest, which is creating its own fb, likely won't get such
treatment.

This is a shitty situation - we have hardware we don't know how it
works, tools we don't know whether they're broken, and comments we're
pretty sure are at least somewhat wrong. Furthermore the hardware is
relatively rare and developers with time to work on improving it are
even rarer.

I'd like to reiterate that the status quo does end up in a functioning
system. Let's try not to break that.

Cheers,
