I think if this discussion is moving to actual code and development we
should shift onto the devel@ list. So much noise in community list its
hard to keep track.

Currently Xorg 7.4 is in OE and with a small modification to
om-gta02.conf can be used as the default xserver.

-XSERVER = "xserver-kdrive-glamo xserver-kdrive-fbdev"
+XSERVER = "xserver-xorg \
+           xf86-video-fbdev \
+           xf86-input-tslib \
+           xf86-input-keyboard"

One regression with this is fbdev driver in Xorg doesnt support RandR so
I wanted to get that into the new glamo driver as the first operation
before acceleration as a lot of people like RandR support.

The tslib driver I did some fixes on so that it no longer required the
xorg.conf to define the screen size.

Then I want to split the glamo acceleration stuff into sensible sized
chunks for importing into Xorg driver.
