For me, this code remains useful and it would be good to merge it.

I accidentally removed the whole patchset from my 
"keep-resending-these-patches" when patch 3 went upstream... I'll rebase

Damn it all..., Rob may (or may not) remember my saying I had trouble 
getting the DRM GFX code to come up on my Android/IFC6410 port. Losing 
track of this patch would certainly explain it!
