  Description     : xserver xorg accelerated video driver for samsung
arm s3c64xx

The Samsung s3c64xx SoC family (most notably the s3c6410 used in the
SmartQ Mobile Internet Devices) have very capable 2D graphics and
video acceleration “on-chip”.

The driver available from the vendor is based the generic
unaccelerated dumb frame buffer Xwindow video driver.

Coupled with the mer-smartq-kernel, this XWindow video driver provides
hardware acceleration for Xvideo extensions (color space mapping,
video frame DMA, etc.).

It also provides XAA hardware blit, fill, and color expansion. Most
graphics operations run 20% to 500% faster using the 2D graphics
accelerator on the SoC.

In addition this driver provides a 28bit alpha-blended hardware
cursor. This means that the cursor is overlayed using the display
controller’s overlay planes/chroma-key/alpha blending hardware rather
than the Xwindow sprite emulation.

A work-in-progress is the crtc/output/modes support for the lcd and
hdmi outputs. This support will enable the XWindow Resize and Rotate
capability.
