DMA-BUF Synchronization With PRIME
Phoronix: DMA-BUF Synchronization With PRIME
Now that X.Org Server 1.13 RC1 is out there with the initial support for PRIME and other exciting features, dependent projects can also now move forward...
Here's a dumb question:
How much of this work is transferable to Wayland?
Afai understand it the kernel work is transferable the x work isn't. What i still haven't understood is how much work has been done in wayland in order to support all the funky features multiple inputs outputs graphic cards multi whatever.

Additionally, it requires certain shared infrastructure which makes it hard to mix open and closed drivers.
