I also have pushed good news to

https://github.com/openpvrsgx-devgroup/linux_openpvrsgx/tree/letux-pvr

Thanks to the help from the Pyra community, I was able to get a (binary) reference
implementation using DRM that works on Pyra/OMAP5. At least the gles1test1.

With that reference setup I was able to fix my Makefiles for the staging/pvr implementation.

I have tested that it works with v4.19.66 and v5.3-rc4 (LPAE build of the LetuxOS kernel tree)
on the Pyra.

In which areas does this tree go beyond the TI SDK/IMG DDK 1.14?

* includes internal API fixes for kernels up to v5.3
* lives in drivers/staging/pvr/1.14.3699939 - so that we can ask for inclusion in linux-next
* has Kconfig and Makefiles for in-kernel configuration (no separate build system)
* builds separate kernel modules for omap3430, omap3630, am335x, omap4, omap5, dra7 etc.
pvrsrvkm
e.g. pvrsrvkm_omap_omap5_sgx544_116
* the correct kernel module is automatically probed by matching .compatible in device tree
so that the code is multi-platform friendly
* includes SoC integration for OMAP3/4/5 and has some preliminary bindings documentation
* code base should also support JZ4780/CI20 and some Intel Atom processors (CedarView, Poulsbo)
* has got a ToDo to describe what should be done during staging phase

https://github.com/openpvrsgx-devgroup/linux_openpvrsgx/blob/letux/latest-pvr/drivers/staging/pvr/TODO

My plans for the next steps are:

* do more testing (e.g. X11, kmscube)
* check if and/or how it can run on am335x (BeagleBone) or OMAP3 (e.g. GTA04, OpenPandora)
* try a JZ480/CI20 build (unfortuantely I have no HDMI there with mainline kernels and I am
missing the user-space libraries for MIPS).

BR,
Nikolaus
