+ * DOC: Flat-CCS - Memory compression for Local memory
+ * On Xe-HP and later devices, we use dedicated compression control state (CCS)
+ * stored in local memory for each surface, to support the 3D and media
+ * compression formats.
+ * The memory required for the CCS of the entire local memory is 1/256 of the
+ * local memory size. So before the kernel boot, the required memory is reserved
+ * for the CCS data and a secure register will be programmed with the CCS base
+ * address.
+ * Flat CCS data needs to be cleared when a lmem object is allocated.
+ * And CCS data can be copied in and out of CCS region through
+ * XY_CTRL_SURF_COPY_BLT. CPU can't access the CCS data directly.
+ * When we exaust the lmem, if the object's placements support smem, then we can
+ * directly decompress the compressed lmem object into smem and start using it
+ * from smem itself.
+ * But when we need to swapout the compressed lmem object into a smem region
+ * though objects' placement doesn't support smem, then we copy the lmem content
+ * as it is into smem region along with ccs data (using XY_CTRL_SURF_COPY_BLT).
+ * When the object is referred, lmem content will be swaped in along with
+ * restoration of the CCS data (using XY_CTRL_SURF_COPY_BLT) at corresponding
+ * location.
+ * Flat-CCS Modifiers for different compression formats
+ * ----------------------------------------------------
+ * I915_FORMAT_MOD_F_TILED_DG2_RC_CCS - used to indicate the buffers of Flat CCS
+ * render compression formats. Though the general layout is same as
+ * I915_FORMAT_MOD_Y_TILED_GEN12_RC_CCS, new hashing/compression algorithm is
+ * used. Render compression uses 128 byte compression blocks
+ * I915_FORMAT_MOD_F_TILED_DG2_MC_CCS -used to indicate the buffers of Flat CCS
+ * media compression formats. Though the general layout is same as
+ * I915_FORMAT_MOD_Y_TILED_GEN12_MC_CCS, new hashing/compression algorithm is
+ * used. Media compression uses 256 byte compression blocks.
+ * I915_FORMAT_MOD_F_TILED_DG2_RC_CCS_CC - used to indicate the buffers of Flat
+ * CCS clear color render compression formats. Unified compression format for
+ * clear color render compression. The genral layout is a tiled layout using
+ * 4Kb tiles i.e Tile4 layout.
