There's still several more weeks until the Linux 3.12 kernel release, but Intel's open-source developers already have a number of changes queued up for Linux 3.13.

With regard to the Linux 3.13 kernel I've already mentioned Intel has a number of changes in the drm-next tree. Over the night, Daniel Vetter of Intel sent in a second batch of changes for the next major Linux kernel development cycle.

Highlights of the latest drm-intel-next tree include a clock state handling re-work, L3 parity handling fixes, continued water mark improvements, fixes for badly behaved contexts, Valley View / Bay Trail support improvements, and VGA power domain handling support.

More details on these early changes for the Intel DRM graphics driver for Linux 3.13 can be found by this drm-next pull request.
