i see none on slackware64/current, maybe just framebuffrering
starts to late in kernel
Yes but it does work as advertised using astdrmfb and has worked with at least one version of i915drmfb using 4.x kernels so I suspect that isn't the case ... or so it would seem. I still haven't got a 5.8.x kernel booting on an older intel gpu so I haven't checked if it is a generic i915 issue of perhaps just the Intel Corporation UHD Graphics 630 (Desktop 9 Series), which does give some firmware loading errors in dmesg no matter what kernel version, even ones where there isn't any issues with mplayer's "-vo fbdev2" switch. As of today I am still guessing and have noticed some incrimental improvements in performance from 5.8.0 up to 5.8.10, so I suspect that it will eventually get fixed. I am less worried about the bootup penguins but would appreciate seeing them again. As of 5.8.10 there are still 8 penguins on bootup on the astdrmfb based motherboard which happens to be what is used on many good quality server boards, including amd epyc systems with the potential for 128 penguins on bootup. :::evil grin:::
A bit too rich for me though.

Better to be often loaded than overloaded.
