Re: [PATCH] sparc: get leo framebuffer working

This patch fixes several issues:
   Use the right openprom device name so the driver is actually loaded.
   Fix a crash due to unitialized info->pseudo_palette.
   Put the framebuffer in the proper mode for software rendering.
   checkpatch cleanups.

Hardware acceleration was removed when the driver was rewritten
for the new framebuffer API in 2003. Software rendering requires
a different framebuffer access mode but that wasn't changed.  The
driver now works again but is slow.  The proper fix is to reintroduce
hardware acceleration.

Thanks, got it. Will try to work on it here later.

What is involved in getting the acceleration working? I wish I understood this architecture better, but I have a lot of difficulty finding relevant docs.
