[RFC 0/4] Add NVIDIA Tegra DRM support

This series adds a basic DRM driver for NVIDIA Tegra 2 processors. It
currently only supports the RGB output and I've successfully tested it
against the fbcon kernel module and the xf86-video-modesetting driver.
The code uses the Tegra's IOMMU/GART to remap non-contiguous memory.
This means that currently video memory is limited to 32 MB, the size of
the GART aperture.

Note that this is very early work-in-progress and there is a lot of room
for improvement and cleanup. You'll also note that there is still a
whole lot of debugging output, most of which is disabled by default.

However I explicitly wanted to post this early to get feedback and to
discuss options on how to get this included in the mainline kernel. I
have been in contact with some people at NVIDIA and they seem to be
willing to work together on a solution that satisfies both their
requirements and those of the community.
