This is V2 of a patchset to use DRM/KMS with broken graphics hardware.
As a major change from V1, generic EDID data are now built-in into the
drm_kms_helper module as proposed by Alan. To help people building
their own EDID data and to understand how the binary EDID blobs in
drivers/gpu/drm/drm_edid_load.c have been created, the entire material
went into the Documentation tree as suggested by Valdis. Finally, David
showed a much better way to explicitly disable and enable a particular
connector, so patch 02/03 could go.
The two remaining patches
- introduce a mechanism to define or load EDID data instead of letting the
controller probe for it,
- add a parameter to the i915 module to invert the sense of the backlight
brightness variable for broken controllers that require this.
