It is not simply based, it is 90% the vo_fbdev.c code.
This means the copyright note in the file is not correct.
The very same commit message say this person have written
patch not the entire file.

At the moment there isn't any kind of attribution to
the original source/authors other
than the commit message.

At least, such stuff should be committed after svn cp.

The Wii specific code is so minor that I fail to find it,
It is much more preferable if the needed improvements
(e.g. maybe YUY2 detection by fb_info.nostd)
are incorporated into the fbdev instead of such massive
code duplication.

I don't see patch for that in -dev-eng.
It is not mandatory but is gesture towards other developer(s)
and helps such kind of problems to be spotted and fixed
before commit.
