    dri2: Pass a ScreenPtr through to the driver's AuthMagic function. (v3)

    xwayland drivers need access to their screen private data to authenticate.
    Now that drivers no longer have direct access to the global screen arrays,
    this needs to be passed in as function context.

    v2: Don't break ABI
    v3: Paint the bikeshed blue; drop fd from AuthMagic2ProcPtr prototype

Comment 1 Chris Wilson 2012-06-25 03:43:29 UTC
Airlied spotted that the return code from DRI2AuthMagic() is the opposite of what was expected for a ds->AuthMagic hook.

    dri2: Fix authentication for < v8 clients (v2).
    The legacy logic was embarassingly wrong; AuthMagic should return errno,
    so returning FALSE only when AuthMagic returns nonzero is exactly wrong.
    v2: Match drmAuthMagic by returning -EINVAL rather than EINVAL
        Fix trailing whitespace
Comment 3 fangxun 2012-07-23 02:50:59 UTC
Verified with xserver master commit 77de2994774e7be24a0bad521180628feb1027c6.
