The gma500 driver uses a lot of direct Linux services rather than
disappearing into the weird world of drm_mm and the like so any
portability is going to be a bit of an illusion at best.
If someone ports it to another GPL licensed OS then I may have to
reconsider a bit, we shall see.

Will do. Got another chunk of patches to fire at Greg shortly and I've
now beaten pretty much all of it into passing CodingStyle so hopefully
any noise will settle down at that point.
Still not ready to leave staging, passing CodingStyle and being clean are
not quite the same thing in this case !
