[PATCH 0/3] Common functions for GEM offset creation

In the process of adding GEM support for OMAP DRM driver, I noticed that
I was adding code for creating/freeing mmap offsets which was virtually
identical to what was already duplicated in i915 and gma500 drivers.

Rather than duplicating the code a 3rd time, it seemed like a good idea
to move it to the GEM core.

Note that I don't actually have a way to test psb or i915, but the
changes seem straightforward enough.


For the curious, OMAP DRM driver is here:

I'll send patches when it's dependencies are merged and it is slightly
more than half baked ;-)

Rob Clark (3):
  drm/gem: add functions for mmap offset creation
  drm/i915: use common functions for mmap offset creation
  drm/gma500: use common functions for mmap offset creation
