Intel Lines Up More Graphics Changes For Linux 3.15
While the Linux 3.15 kernel merge window won't be open for a few more weeks, Intel has already queued up another batch of DRM graphics driver updates for this next major kernel version.
Last month I wrote about Intel already having a lot of GPU kernel code for Linux 3.15 and since then there's only been more code to appear. The latest work that's going to land in Linux 3.15 for the Intel Direct Rendering Manager driver is an execbuf rebind performance regression fix, cleaning up connector ordering, tring to preserve the firmware mode-set configuration on driver loading, DRRS prep work, a pipestat interrupt handler, improved display fuse handling, and many other small improvements and fixes.
More details on these latest Intel graphics driver changes to be introduced in Linux 3.15 can be found via this drm-next pull request.
