Texas Instruments has proposed a new low-level display framework for Linux.

An OMAP driver developer at Texas Instruments wrote a rather lengthy post about a new low-level display framework.

As Keith replies, the TI proposal isn't radically different from what's being worked on now within the DRM world to make overlay support within KMS a suitable framework. Hit up the already lengthy mailing list thread if you're interested in the details.
