Solo crashes on ia64 on startup
Last modified: 2005-03-04 11:04:36 UTC
When I use solo on ia64, it sometimes causes an MCA upon startup. That's because
a memset is done on the framebuffer memory during init.
Please refer to this message from Jesse Barnes to know why this is bad :
Here is a patch that fixes this by changing the memset into a for() loop doing
memory access one byte at a time :

Other drivers (r128 and mga) are affected too, this patches fixes all the
drivers that seemed to have this problem.
Should be fixed in cvs for ia64 and powerpc
