The Intel DRM graphics driver will again have another round of features and improvements with the Linux 3.14 kernel.

Intel generally has multiple Git pull requests into drm-next each cycle, ahead of the official opening of the Linux kernel merge window. The latest round of Intel driver changes landed last night inside drm-next. The Linux 3.13 kernel is expected to be released in a week or two and following that is when the Linux 3.14 kernel cycle will officially commence.

Changes that were just merged into drm-next from the drm-intel-next tree include FBC1 (frame-buffer compression) improvements for pre-GM45 hardware, Valley View (Bay Trail) force-wake improvements, fixes for context hang stat code, PC8 improvements, prep work for runtime D3 power savings support is almost ready, Gen2 DPLL fixes, DSI improvements, various smaller bug-fixes and improvements all over the DRM kernel driver's code-base.

The Git pull with the changes can be found via this drm-next merge. Stay tuned for additional Linux 3.14 kernel details shortly on Phoronix.
