Problem with both CONFIG_FB_SIS_300 and CONFIG_FB_SIS_315

Hi Gerd,

with the following in the .config:

CONFIG_FB_SIS_300=y
CONFIG_FB_SIS_315=y

gcc gices the following warnings when compiling sis_main.h:

<--  snip  -->

make[4]: Entering directory
`/home/bunk/linux/kernel-2.4/linux/drivers/video/sis'
gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/home/bunk/linux/kernel-2.4/linux/include -Wall

sis_main.h:92: warning: `IND_SIS_CRT2_WRITE_ENABLE' redefined
sis_main.h:89: warning: this is the location of the previous definition

<--  snip  -->

gcc is pretty right to give warnings because the affected lines are:

<--  snip  -->

...
/* For 300 series */
#ifdef CONFIG_FB_SIS_300
#define TURBO_QUEUE_AREA_SIZE     0x80000       /* 512K */
#define HW_CURSOR_AREA_SIZE       0x1000        /* 4K */
#endif

/* For 315 series */
#ifdef CONFIG_FB_SIS_315
#define COMMAND_QUEUE_AREA_SIZE   0x80000       /* 512K */
#define HW_CURSOR_AREA_SIZE       0x4000        /* 16K */
#define COMMAND_QUEUE_THRESHOLD   0x1F
#endif
...
// Eden Chen
#ifdef CONFIG_FB_SIS_300
#define IND_SIS_CRT2_WRITE_ENABLE 0x24
#endif
#ifdef CONFIG_FB_SIS_315
#define IND_SIS_CRT2_WRITE_ENABLE 0x2F
#endif
// ~Eden Chen
...

<--  snip  -->

I doubt that with both CONFIG_FB_SIS_300 and CONFIG_FB_SIS_315 enabled a
card that needs CONFIG_FB_SIS_300 would work.

I have no knowledge of this driver but there seem to be two possibilities
to resolve this:

1. Change the code to allow both CONFIG_FB_SIS_300 and CONFIG_FB_SIS_315
   to be enabled at the same time.
2. Change Config.in to allow only one of the two options in one kernel.

Hi,

you're right. Both options don't (yet) work together.

I have a new version of sisfb around the corner (partly new code from
SiS themselves). The code is currently in a testing phase and will be
committed as soon as it is stable.

The goal is to have the same code basis for the sisfb as well as the X
driver. This is under development - and it will solve the issue you
described as well.

For the status of the current development, see
