DRM Changes For Linux 2.6.32 Kernel
David Airlie has just called for the first DRM pull request for the Linux 2.6.32 kernel. To no surprise, R600/700 3D support can be found within the Direct Rendering Manager code as with kernel mode-setting support for these newer ATI Radeon graphics cards.
Also found within the Linux 2.6.32 DRM is the much-worked VGA Arbitration code, the KMS page-flipping ioctl, Radeon TV-Out, and the Intel DRM code now supports dynamic clocking for improved power management.
The list of highlights for the Linux 2.6.32 DRM so far can be found on the dri-devel mailing list. Sadly, it looks like the Nouveau kernel mode-setting DRM will not be ready for this forthcoming kernel.
