Kernel Modesetting and Memory Management
Currently, most graphics modes are initialized during the X server startup. Kernel Modesetting moves this process from the X server's DDX drivers to the kernel, and it enables several new features including:
- Improved Graphical Boot
- Fast user switching
- Seamless X server switching
- Multiple simultaneous X servers
Memory Management, while a separate feature in its own right, is included here because it is a requirement for Kernel Modesetting.

Benefit to Fedora
If kernel modesetting is not present, user modesetting is performed by the appropriate X server DDX driver as in past releases.
