Subject: [PATCH 1/4] gxfb: Replace FBSIZE config option with a kernel argument
Date: Sat, 23 Feb 2008 01:10:45 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20080223011045.48e6cb8e@ephemeral> (raw)


Use a command line option (fbsize:) rather than hardcoding the vram size.
LxFB already does this; it's useful for machines that can't query the
BIOS for fb size.  This patch originated from David Woodhouse, was
modified by Jordan Crouse, and was then modified further by me.
