Hi ARM SoC maintainers,

this:
1. updates the SPEAr 3xx defconfig
2. replaces the fbdev PL11x framebuffer driver with the DRM PL11x driver
   in the defconfig

This has the ACK of the SPEAr maintainer Viresh Kumar. I don't think
there even is a SPEAr git tree so I send this from my GPIO tree. If they
have other plans, they can say so now :D

Please pull it into ARM SoC in the appropriate place, next kernel is
fine.

Yours,
Linus Walleij

I have a similar comment to the nomadik update, though there
is only one non-obvious option: why do you turn on CONFIG_PREEMPT=y?

Oh that's just something from my script, sorry.

It'd good that it comes up but I guess it should be a
separate patch.

These are not servers so any other configuration than
CONFIG_PREEMPT is probably just wrong, as is any
other setting than Tickless idle and HRTimers on.

I am thinking maybe we should actually have ARMv7 and
ARMv8 multi Kconfig simply select these things, I don't
really see why anyone would want to configure these
differently, it just seems vaguely cargoculty and overcautious.

Yours,
Linus Walleij

Yes, I agree that turning these on is a good idea, but please
send that as a separate patch. One patch to turn it on in
all configurations you care about is fine.
