Beside the Chrome9 documentation VIA already released and that is linked
from the wiki[1], there is also a couple patches introducing a dedicated
Chrome9 drm driver VIA submitted for kernel inclusion[2] which are
probably a good information source. I believe the preferred path for
Chrome9 DRM is to add support for it to the new openchrome drm module
Thomas is working on at the moment[3].
