C&T 65548 fbdev driver

This is a framebuffer driver for the Linux 2.4.x kernel that supports the Chips&Technologies 65548 video chip found in older Toshiba Satellite notebooks and Fujitsu Point 510. There is also experimental support for 65545 and 65540 chipsets.

        Release Notes: The driver has been rewritten from scratch. It now supports 800x600 and 640x480 modes in both 8 and 16 bit color depths. You can switch between them during runtime. You can toggle acceleration and alter the pixel clock rate. Most important of all, there is now a penguin on boot.

            Project is on hold
            Due to fact that my trusty Satellite Pro 410CS has

            recently broken down I'm unable to continue work on

            this code without a test platform. If there is something

            to fix or extend I'm afraid that you will have to do it on

            your own. However I will happily answer to all questions

            and comments.

            Fortunately, this driver has reached a decent stage of

            usability and quality so taking it over will be much

            easier than writing it from scratch. Twice :).

            The Toshiba Sattelite 115CS, 110CS, and 110CT notebooks also have this chipset. These are not Pro models!!!
