    SubjectRe: [Linux-fbdev-devel] [PATCH][FBDEV]: fb_putcs() and fb_setfont() methods

    Rejected. I have put thought into it and the whole point was to not allow
    the fbdev layer to touch console data. I stand firm on this!!! The reason
    being is the core console layer is going to change the next development
    cycle. We have to change to deal with things like the PC9800 type hardware
    that support more than 512 fonts. Do we realy want to break every fbdev
    driver again. This way the breakage is once and for all. Its is also a
    pandoras box. If we place these hooks in we end up with the same crappy
    driver problem we had before. I never heard anyone every say the old api
    we clean.
