Can we test this code in our kernel on the olpc-2.6 repository?  Is it sensible to try to merge it with our 2.6.31 source?  Is this something you can test for us?

I can test it out, no problem. The only issue is that this seems more
important for support of the actual 3D driver than the actual 3D
driver. Don't know how far VIA is pertaining the work on the 3D level.
IMHO, it is quite sad that they're paying an employee to get the code
merged and the person is apparently being ignored. The lack of time by
the maintainer certainly doesn't help Linux out on hardware support...
