Do these patches affect compilation on previous kernel releases? As you
certainly understand, I want to stay compatible with previous kernels.
I tested them (compilation test) with kernel version 2.6.9, without any major errors.
On another laptop, running stock debian kernel version 2.4.26-1-i386 it compiled,
but didn't loaded ok (driver version 3.14.6); I'll try to test to see if my patches
are to blame and get back to you probably tomorrow.
just for the record, the kernel module will not compile and will not run
under the latest -mm patch [...] becuase the DRM has been cleaned up and
the initialisation process has changed.
Does 3.14.6 fix this, as far as you know?
unfortunatelly no ..
As I told to Øystein Gisnås, I hope somebody else, with much more experience then
me will do it first. I had a patch, but as it's not logically/functionally correct
I discarded it.
