Intel Valley View Still Being Tuned For Linux

The drm-intel-testing Git branch has been updated with new code that's ready for testing and eventual merging into the Linux 3.10 kernel.

For the latest work that's landed past the Linux 3.9 kernel merge window includes:

- Imre's for_each_sg_pages rework (now also with the stolen mem backed cased fixed with a hacke) plus the prime sg list coalescing patch from Rahul Sharma.
- vlv patches from Jesse et al, by far not yet complete.
- More unclaimed register fixes from Paulo.
- Minor fixlets (Kees Cook, Mihnea Dobrescu-Balaur, Ben, Ville).
- Some prep-work for the crazy no-pch platform by Ben.


The latest commits were announced on the intel-gfx for those interested in testing. As it affects end-users, the likely most significant work is the continued progress on Valley View enablement, which will be the company's first Atom SoC with integrated in-house HD graphics. The Linux support is still coming about for Valley View (VLV), but the hardware launch is also still a number of months away.

This latest round of drm-intel-testing work builds upon some new features/work already covered earlier this month for the Linux 3.10 cycle with open-source Intel Linux graphics.
