For those Intel Linux customers living on the bleeding edge, their open-source graphics driver team has some new code available for testing.
With the Linux 3.9 kernel
past its merge window now, the Intel developers have already been hard at work preparing for the Linux 3.10 kernel.
The latest changes announced by Daniel Vetter on the behalf of the Intel OTC team include:
- More Valley View
enablement patches. This is the forthcoming Intel Atom with HD graphics
rather than PowerVR cruft. Sadly the hardware is still some months out and being enabled on the open-source Linux driver, but it will be very exciting once it arrives.
- HDMI/SDVO code clean-up.
- VBlank fixes for old Intel "Gen2" through "Gen4" (GMA X3000 series) graphics.
- Unclaimed register warning fixes for Haswell hardware.
- Support for completing page-flips that have been stuck in a GPU hang. This change should prevent OpenGL compositors from being stuck.
- Power management patches for vt-switchless resume.
The changes were announced by Daniel on intel-gfx
and the work can be found from this drm-intel Git repository branch
