It may not be worth blocking on this, so
Acked-by: Thomas Zimmermann <tzimmermann at suse.de>
But I still think it's not a good interface because it exposes internal
Please consider another idea: how about splitting off the ttm_bo_get()
and vma-flags setup of ttm_fbdev_mmap() into a separate function, like this:
void ttm_bo_mmap_refed(vma, bo)
int ttm_fbdev_mmap(vma, bo)
if (vma->vm_pgoff != 0)
That would allow to keep _vma_setup() an internal function.
ttm_fbdev_mmap() sounds like it is only for fbdev and the only user is
amdgpu. Can it be moved out of ttm entirely?
