XvMC code was written by previous developers 7 to 10 years ago.
I had no involvement with it.
Please understand that OpenChrome's project development resource is easily
1/30th of Intel graphics stack.
I am the only developer working on the code, and my hands are completely tied
up for the next few years.
I am trying to fix various flaws of existing OpenChrome DDX code, and trying to
fix the problems of OpenChrome DRM (KMS / TTM supporting version) so that it
can be mainlined with the Linux kernel eventually.
As a result, I have virtually no time to work on issues other than those two.
I am leaning towards not incorporating this patch.
I do not see the urgency of why this patch should be incorporated in the first
