Just hours ago a new Linux KMS driver entered the world for
the Cirrus GPU. Yes, as in that from Cirrus Logic for an ancient
CL-GD5446 ASIC, this was a 2D-only 64-bit VisualMedia accelerator. But,
fortunately, it is not for the actual hardware itself but rather the
virtual incarnation that is emulated by QEMU and QEMU-KVM. Those running
a Linux KVM virtualization stack with QEMU and the Cirrus adapter can
now benefit from a kernel mode-setting driver.
