I have been thinking about this as well. One of the short coming for DRM
on embedded platforms is the lack of a small well defined library that one
could use. Right now libkms only handles buffer allocation. The mode
setting is currently tied to the libdrm library. It would be nice to
seperate the two out more. Move the mode setting code to libkms and then
have libdrm be a wrapper around this. This way libdrm can both support
the legacy drm drivers and the new kms drivers at the same time. It also
makes a clear seperation. Jakob if you are willing to take this work I
will gladly seen you patches.
