    Huh? (the space is not really a problem)

    Ugh, I really hope you introduce those only as temporary exports until
    the split is finished. It's ugly enough that viafb uses these internally
    as global variables which will vanish in some time but for a
    multifunction driver having those sounds even more ridiculous. If we
    agree that it's only a temporary solution I'll take this bitter pill.

    I think the initialization of the lock that is made for synchronization
    of hardware access should be in the via-core.c you just introduce. (and
    the lock itself in a structure or something outside the framebuffer
    flow). Just saw that you did so in your next patch, so there is no
    reason to needlessly introduce the spinlock now.


    Thanks,

    Florian Tobias Schandinat
