      Am I the only one that feels like the Radeon changes really aren't that exciting? Is more coming, or is the development more focused towards Mesa now?

        Why does the kernel/driver have any notion of cursor sizes?

          The display (modesetting) code is in the kernel driver.

            I'm guessing because the cursor exists in a dedicated graphics buffer and they're just making the size of that buffer bigger?

                  It still seems odd to me that the concept of a cursor exists any level above the display server.

                    The "concept" is managed up in the display server, but the *hardware* which realizes that concept is managed by kernel code.
