This patch set implement new display subsystem driver (DSS2) and omapfb driver
for OMAP2/3. The patches have been reviewed on linux-omap and linux- fbdev-devel
mailing lists. The patches can also be found from

The patches include DSS documentation patch that includes more instructions for
module parameters, sysfs files etc.

The patches enable DSS2 for OMAP3430 SDP board. DSS2 is used in various boards,
for example Nokia N900, Beagle Board and Overo.

I don't currently have any OMAP2 board to test DSS2, but it has worked on OMAP2
and the possible fixes needed should be minimal.

OMAP1 is not supported, and so the old DSS needs to be used on OMAP1 boards.

DSS2 is partly based on the old omapfb driver by Imre Deak, and Imre has also
contributed to DSS2 quite a bit. Ville Syrjälä has been contributing to scaling
and tv-out work. Also some contributions have been made by Hardik Shah, Vaibhav
Hiremath, and perhaps some others that I have forgotten =).

Tony, Andrew,

how could we merge this code (unless there are requests to change something, which
does not seem to be the case.). It seems like there is no maintainer who could
merge this. Or there is? Would Tomi need to send a direct pull request to Linus,
or this could got via Tony?

We are using DSS2 in Nokia for about a year already. N900 is using this
code, for example. Other (non-Nokia) projects are using DSS2 as well.
The code was public for long time and was sent several times for review.

With my beagleboard hat on: I agree with Artem, let's get this merged. I hope other TI folk can put their TI hat on and say something nice about dss2 as well :)
