> James, with your latest kernel revision I get a panic due to bad allocations at startup.

Yes I found some more bugs last night with drm-openchrome relationing to 
the hardware cursor. The oops with buffer allocation should of stopped as 
well. A bug still exist with the gem allocation code in the drm-openchrome
branch that I'm tracking down.

This is all with the drm-openchrome kernel? Does the release trunk version 
work for you? If it doesn't it might be the added VX900 video support

git branch -a   : will list branches. Master is the main one and  
                  kms_branch the other one of importance.

git checkout -b "branch name locally" origin/"remote branch wanted"

After you check it out the first time a local copy is stashed so all you 
have to do is git checkout "branch local name"
