Hash: SHA1

This is the initial release of a generic kernel modesetting driver for Linux.

It is to be used like -fbdev was as a generic fallback driver when the main
driver isn't available.

It doesn't provide any acceleration features except shadowfb.

It also can be used as the driver for chipsets where userspace acceleration
isn't useful, usb devices, dumb framebuffers etc.
