Subject: Re: [patch] video: support for VGA hoses on alpha TITAN, TSUNAMI systems (ES45, DS25)

Thanks for the feedback.  I'll incorporate your comments and Ivan's into an
updated patch and re-test.  What's the procedure afterwards -- should I
re-submit as a follow-up to this thread or start a new thread?

Ok, will ask Jay for this.

Ivan's comment, that this is effectively a PCI domain, is consistent with my
(limited) understanding.

Yeah. :/  Suggestions welcome.

Uhm, appears not.  Thanks for noticing.

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
