GPD Pocket runs X via wsfb driver, with hardware rotation. Intel HD 405 unsupported.

Hi,

The GPD Pocket has Intel HD 405 graphics, which is not supported ( http://man.openbsd.org/intel.4 ).

Furthermore, the laptop display is rotated 90 degrees by default, so the text console looks messed up: a small blob of text in the middle of the display, that is rotated 90 degrees.

However, X works fine when run with the "wsfb" (UEFI framebuffer) driver, with this /etc/X11/xorg.conf , and obviously with "xterm -fa fixed -fs 19":

    Section "Device"
         Identifier "Card0"
         Driver "wsfb"
         Option "Rotate" CW"
     EndSection


I guess this is fair enough, and the only relevant thing to add here would be larger font and screen rotation in the text console.


Now that I mention there anyhow though, I'd also like to ask if there are any plans to support the Intel HD 405 at some point?


Thanks and hope the xorg.conf helps someone.

Joseph
