Written by Michael Larabel in Linux Kernel on 28 June 2013 at 12:02 AM EDT. 3 Comments
After having already prepared a number of changes for the Intel graphics driver in the upcoming Linux 3.11 kernel, Intel OTC has now published their last batch of changes they hope to see merged into this next kernel merge window.

Calling upon David Airlie as the Linux DRM subsystem maintainer, Daniel Vetter has sent in the final drm-intel-next pull for 3.11. Intel already has many 3.11 changes for their Direct Rendering Manager driver like proper Valley View / Bay Trail support, but now there is even more.

In this final pull request are more GPU hangcheck changes in preparing for GL_ARB_robustness support, beginning to work on the shared PCH PLL rework, Haswell audio power-well support, GTT refactoring, and 30bpp support.
