[RFC,drm-misc-next v4 2/9] drm/nouveau: Implement .be_primary() callback

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


From: Sui Jingfeng <suijingfeng@xxxxxxxxxxx>

On a machine with multiple GPUs, a Linux user has no control over which one
is primary at boot time. This patch tries to solve the mentioned problem by
implementing the .be_primary() callback. VGAARB will call back to Nouveau
when the drm/nouveau gets loaded successfully.

Pass nouveau.modeset=10 on the kernel cmd line if you really want the
device bound by Nouveau to be the primary video adapter. This overrides
whatever boot device selected by VGAARB.
