    what the acronyms sa and bo stand for?

    In the drm source code for radeon, the acronyms sa and bo are very frequently used (for example, in radeon_sa.c) , but nowhere explained. my guesses are

    sa = standalone allocator???
    bo = buffer object????

    does anybody know what these acronyms represent??

    from my reading of the source code, I deduce that they relate to memory allocation for ring buffer, but I am not sure.

    thanks a lot, everything is a bit clearer now.
    It will be great if somebody adds this explanation as a comment to the appropriate places in source code.
