A couple of things. First, the Epson controller is obsolete, I don't
know how much time is worth spending on the software. If you
don't already have a system in production using it, there isn't
much sense spending time working with it.
Second, with the on-chip controller, I have experimented with
some different cache modes for the frame buffer access. I
don't know if this applicable to the external 13806, but you
could try. Alchemy has an application note on this, I believe,
but in any case, here is what I put into the au1100fb.c,
pgprot_val(vma->vm_page_prot) &= ~_CACHE_MASK;
pgprot_val(vma->vm_page_prot) |= _CACHE_CACHABLE_CUW;
A similar kind of update is in the current CVS tree.
Fujitsu has a bunch of nice high performance embedded
graphics controllers for many different applications.
