Since looking at this, it seems that some Z2 and Z3 boards work, and some don't.
It's possible that NCR supplied MacroSystems with a different revision of the
graphics chip at some point, so it may be that it's incompatible. I'm trying to
chase this up right now.
The Retina system software does not use this text scrolling function, so it
could be that the more efficient code provided is simply not supported by some
revisions of the board, and this would *not* be spotted by the MacroSystems
John, can you also apply the patch to ite_rh.c too, and possibly supply the core
team with both ite_rt.c and ite_rh.c?
p.s. Incidentally, i've worked around this until I get a new recompiled kernel
