Roadmap to recovery: Pain and Redemption in X driver development

Over the last several years, we've proposed dozens of potential architectures for support of graphics devices in a Linux environment. They have ranged from utterly lame to completely impractical, with only a few showing any potential at all. While this has taken a huge amount of time and energy, it looks to be finally coming to some kind of reasonable resolution. This talk will showcase a (hopefully working) driver that satisfies the requirements of the kernel, X and desktop communities and offers new levels of functionality and performance.
