I am trying to use gma500 driver for the noemgd BSPs. The current best
xf86 driver for it is modesetting. This recipe provides that
driver.

Big changes like this are generally avoided, but this is a pretty
important recipe. Merged into danny-next, should being doing a full
test build tonight.

The GMA500 comment is very misleading, this is just a recipe for yet-another-ddx that only gets installed when you ask for it :) What the commit forgets to mention is that it's a ddx for any DRM based kernel display driver, I need it for beagleboard, beaglebone which don't use gma500 and also for fri2 which does use gma500.

regards,

Koen

Indeed, it's the new fbdev. Death to fbdev!

I had brought in the modesetting driver just for gma500, and glad to see more use of it.
BTW FRI2 does not & cannot use the gma500 driver.
