In GSOC 2017, Student Vivek attempted to port the needed linux compatibility headers to get DRM functional with minimal changes.
While the GSOC project wasn't completed successfully, some work was done. This ticket is to track what work was done by the student, and to help future analysis of the feasibility of simply wrapping DRM with the needed compatibility libraries.
Vivek had two branches:
- drm_1 -- early branch, more linux headers copied over
- drm -- later branch, fewer compatibility libraries but looks more refined.
The branches contain a lot of smaller commits. I've squashed them into a single patch each and am attaching them here.
