Feature Name

Radeon 3D update

Summary

Update the radeon r100/r200 3D drivers to work with kernel modesetting, also merge r100/r200/r300 driver lower levels into a common codebase to allow easier addition of new features such as FBOs later.

Detailed Description

Benefit to Fedora

This allows all radeon cards from r100->r500 to support kernel modesetting without loss of features, and add support for new 3D stack features such as FBOs and DRI2.

Scope

Take the mesa 3D drivers r100/r200/r300, create a common code layer covering all the buffer management, mipmaps, texturing, command submission. Port all 3 drivers to the common code base and fix all regressions and try to optimise for the new system.

How To Test

Need an r100/r200 GPU, test that games and 3D apps still work at an acceptable level, and that there are no major regressions in the OS.

User Experience

KMS on r100/r200 with DRI2 supported compositing. THe gears should spin on the cube.

Dependencies

KMS for r100/r200 to be enabled + DRI2.

Contingency Plan

Revert to the F10 drivers.
