Default Re: Will we ever see an amd64 NVidia driver for FreeBSD?

@Harvey Pooka: I've only looked at it briefly, but I believe so. My original email still mostly reflects the needs and status, with the exception of device cloning, which looked like it would work, but didn't due to various technical problems (e.g. interaction with stat(2)). One solution for this that was suggested by a FreeBSD developer is to pass down the equivalent of a 'struct file*' from the devfs layer. I'm told that work on some of the other interfaces like pmap_mapdev_attr() and pmap_change_attr() is on hold until the superpages work is complete. If I recall correctly, there are tentative ideas/plans for the mmap(2) interface, as well, but nothing concrete, yet.
