Not quite the impression I got when I asked Eben about this at the Maker Faire but he did say to talk to him if I get to a stage where the rest of the OS is working. It'll be really great this happens! As you point out this is a non trivial amount work to implement even if one had all the information and it would be a complete waste of effort to redo this. Given the limited amount of memory & non realtimeness (or soft realtime at best) of lInux, it may make sense to kick out linux if the raspi is used for a very specific purpose. Open sourcing would be the best option for these kind of uses.jamesh wrote:HOWEVER..(there is always one of those), the Linux libraries that then use this driver are currently closed source, so you have no way of knowing which messages do what. It is hoped that the closed nature of these lib (OpenGL ES for example) will change.
