it seems that amd has really taken opensource support seriously. let's see how fast the oss drivers would improve after the release of the new documentation and of this performance library.
AMD has taken that support pretty seriously over the years. Oprofile should be more than enough proof of that (A systemwide profiler not unlike what's offered by Intel's VTune- for free and as FOSS...think about that one for a bit...). The stuff they've done in recent days with ATI's info should be proof enough of that as well- though, I will opine that it's taken them longer than they ought to for starting the whole ball rolling and it's taking longer than they probably ought to be taking on getting some of the key pieces in place, though it IS all coming together all the same. This is another good example from them.
