VIA's patch

VIA has released a patch to support newer (chrome9) VIA chips at linux.via.com.tw.

It doesn't break any existing code, so it should be safe to add to experimental builds.

Some of the comments embedded in this code are pure comedy :)

/* Strange thing happen! Faint. Code bug! */

/*DONE. Need we call function copy_to_user ?NO. We can't even
touch user's space.But we are lucky, since kernel drm:drm_ioctl
will to the job for us.  */

Freedesktop's Bugzilla instance is EOLed and open bugs are about to be migrated to http://gitlab.freedesktop.org.

To avoid migrating out of date bugs, I am now closing all the bugs that did not see any activity in the past year. If the issue is still happening, please create a new bug in the relevant project at https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/drm (use misc by default).

Sorry about the noise!
