LXer: Kernel changes: Splitting DRM and KMS device nodes

Published at LXer:

While most devices of the 3 major x86 desktop GPU-providers have GPU and display-controllers merged on a single card, recent development (especially on ARM) shows that rendering (via GPU) and mode-setting (via display-controller) are not necessarily bound to the same device. To better support such devices, several changes are being worked on for DRM.
