Bug Description

The original Linux kernel 2.6.24 has already had the H2 DRM module via.ko, but it doesn't support VIA new graphics which have new 3D engines in. This patch will let kernel 2.6.24 has the ability to drive VIA new 3D engines.

Impact: Add support for new VIA DRM 3D Engines

Patch Description: This patch adds support for new VIA PCI IDs 0x3225, 0x3371, and 0x1122. It updates support for 0x3230, so there are some possibilities for regression with that PCI ID.

Patch: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/git?p=ubuntu/ubuntu-hardy.git;a=commit;h=0abade1a6d7737fac9f72ead236c5313161dd48a

Test Case: See bug description
