DESCRIPTION
       nsc is an Xorg driver for National Semiconductors GEODE processor family.
       It uses the DURANGO kit provided by National Semiconductor.  The driver
       is accelerated, and provides support for the following framebuffer
       depths: 8, 16 and 24.

SUPPORTED HARDWARE
       The nsc driver supports GXLV (5530 companion chip), SC1200, SC1400 and
       GX2 (5535 companion chip).

CONFIGURATION DETAILS
       Please refer to xorg.conf(5) for general configuration details.  This
       section only covers configuration details specific to this driver.

       The driver will auto-detect the amount of video memory present for all
       chips. If the amount of memory is detected incorrectly, the actual amount
       of video memory should be specified with a VideoRam entry in the config
       file "Device" section.

       The following driver Options are supported:

       Option "SWCursor" "boolean"
              Enable or disable the SW cursor.  Default: off.

       Option "HWCursor" "boolean"
              Enable or disable the HW cursor.  Default: on.

       Option "NoAccel" "boolean"
              Disable or enable acceleration.  Default: acceleration is enabled.

       Option "NoCompression" "boolean"
              Disable or enable compression.  Default: compression is enabled.

       Option "ShadowFB" "boolean"
              Enable or disable use of the shadow framebuffer layer.  Default:
              off.

       Option "Rotate" "CW"
              Rotate the display clockwise. This mode is unaccelerated, and uses
              the Shadow Frame Buffer layer.  Default: no rotation.

       Option "Rotate" "CCW"
              Rotate the display counterclockwise. This mode is unaccelerated,
              and uses the Shadow Frame Buffer layer.  Default: no rotation.

       Option "FlatPanel" "boolean"
              This enables the FlatPanel display unit. The FlatPanel depends on
              the BIOS to do the Panel h/w initialization.  In GX2 based
              platforms with TFT part Flatpanel is enabled, and on CRT part is
              disabled.  Default: off.

       Option "OSMImageBuffers" "integer"
              This sets the number of scanline buffers to be allocated in
              offscreen memory for acceleration. This can take any value 0 will
              disable the allocation. Disabled if cannot allocate requested
              scanline memory.  Default: 20.

       Option "ColorKey" "integer"
              This sets the default pixel value for the YUV video overlay key.
              Default: 0.

       The following Options are supported only on SC1200 based platforms:

       Option "TV" "PAL-768x576"
              Selects the PAL TV display mode 768x576 and the depth is forced to
              16 bpp.  Default: no TV.

       Option "TV" "PAL-720x576"
              Selects the PAL TV display mode 720x576 and the depth is forced to
              16 bpp.  Default: no TV.

       Option "TV" "NTSC-720x480"
              Selects the NTSC TV display mode 720x480 and the depth is forced
              to 16 bpp.  Default: no TV.

       Option "TV" "NTSC-640x480"
              Selects the NTSC TV display mode 640x480 and the depth is forced
              to 16 bpp.  Default: no TV.

       Option "TV_Output" "COMPOSITE"
              The selected TV mode output is coded for Composite signal.
              Default: no TV.

       Option "TV_Output" "SVIDEO"
              The selected TV mode output is coded for SVIDEO signal.  Default:
              no TV.

       Option "TV_Output" "YUV"
              The selected TV mode output is coded for YUV signal.  Default: no
              TV.

       Option "TV_Output" "SCART"
              The selected TV mode output is coded for SCART signal.  Default:
              no TV.

       Option "TVOverscan" x:yy:ww:hh"
              This option will let only the viewable display area smaller to be
              able to view on TV. The parameters xx: X-offset, yy: Y-offset, ww:
              Viewable width, hh: Viewable height.  Default: no TV.
