Re: [PATCH] video/udlfb: fix line counting in fb_write

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


sorry, I forgot to mention that this is a candidate for all stable trees 2.6.37 and above. Not sure how to announce that, but I think I should have added the below Cc: to the patch.

Line 0 and 1 were both written to line 0 (on the display) and all subsequent
lines had an offset of -1. The result was that the last line on the display
was never overwritten by writes to /dev/fbN.
