Could you help to port the AMD Geode driver to newer API's? It is a very common chipset used in thin client hardware (as well as OLPC).


The ark, chips, s3, and tseng drivers are going away.  These are all
really boring early PCI chipsets that don't even have a 3d engine.  They
should be adequately serviced by the vesa driver.  (Note that there are
three drivers for the various S3 cards: s3, s3virge, and savage.  s3 is
for the old pre-Virge chips, 968 and Trio and friends.  s3virge and
savage are not being dropped.)


Please reconsider s3?

It is used by several of the thin client models selling today, and Intel's "Affordable PC" reference platform that is being sold in large numbers in the developing world (e.g. China) by companies like Dell.
