Subject[PATCH 5.1 54/70] drm/nouveau: add kconfig option to turn off nouveau legacy contexts. (v3)
Date
From: Dave Airlie <airlied@redhat.com>

commit b30a43ac7132cdda833ac4b13dd1ebd35ace14b7 upstream.

There was a nouveau DDX that relied on legacy context ioctls to work,
but we fixed it years ago, give distros that have a modern DDX the
option to break the uAPI and close the mess of holes that legacy
context support is.

Full context of the story:

drm: Turn off Legacy Context Functions

The context functions are not used by the i915 driver and should not
be used by modeset drivers. These driver functions contain several bugs
and security holes. This change makes these functions optional can be
turned on by a setting, they are turned off by default for modeset
driver with the exception of the nouvea driver that may require them with
an old version of libdrm.

The previous attempt was

drm: mark context support as a legacy subsystem

but this had to be reverted

Revert "drm: mark context support as a legacy subsystem"

v2: remove returns from void function, and formatting (Daniel Vetter)

v3:
- s/Nova/nouveau/ in the commit message, and add references to the
previous attempts
- drop the part touching the drm hw lock, that should be a separate
patch.
