[opensuse-boosters] Egbert's Weeks 50,51 2009 and 2,3 2010

- Complete KMS integration into Factory and preparation for SLE11 SP1.
* Fix mkinitrd to determine the required driver(s) and and pack them into
initrd. Modify linuxrc to parse the boot options and pass the required
option to enable/disable KMS.
* Fix yast2-bootloader and perl-Bootloader to add the required options to
the boot command line for each menu entry.
* Modify udev to disable automatic loading of DRM modules. This is required
as udev cannot be used to enforce a specific order of modules to load
while KMS requires the agp module to be loaded.
* create a modprobe install script which checks for blacklisted PCI device
IDs and prevents those modules from being loaded.
* Submitted fixes for both Factory and Enterprise products, tested results:
Factory integration is not complete, yet:
- mkinitrd: while applying patches newly created files were accidentally
- udev: the latest version of the patch has not yet been incorporated.
NOTE: To test KMS integration on Factory you presently still need to add

- Added an image scaler to the SUSE kernel bootsplash code which allows to
rescale the bootsplash image to arbitrary resolutions. This allows to show
a bootsplash image in both VESA and KMS mode even if both modes differ in
It should allow us to only ship a single bootsplash image (hopefully in
higher quality than presently)

- Got started on KMS and DRI2 integration into radeonhd.
