    Phoronix: Test Driving The QEMU-KVM KMS Driver

    Just hours ago a new Linux KMS driver entered the world for the Cirrus GPU. Yes, as in that from Cirrus Logic for an ancient CL-GD5446 ASIC, this was a 2D-only 64-bit VisualMedia accelerator. But, fortunately, it is not for the actual hardware itself but rather the virtual incarnation that is emulated by QEMU and QEMU-KVM. Those running a Linux KVM virtualization stack with QEMU and the Cirrus adapter can now benefit from a kernel mode-setting driver.

    Shouldn't SPICE be supposed to be the future of virtualized graphics?

      Yes, this driver is just intended to help with legacy setups.

        Following the previous comment, I wonder when RedHat will start working on a KMS version of the QXL driver.
