Three days ago we reported on Luc Verhaegen and his expedition of modularizing Mesa and its DRI drivers
following his talk last month at FOSDEM concerning the ways of cleaning up the Linux graphics driver stack
. While we were early to report on Luc's work, yesterday he announced his modularized DRI drivers and Mesa SDK on the Mesa3D development list, but his work has fallen on deaf ears.
While his work touches the Radeon and Intel drivers (among others), none of the developers have communicated their thoughts on the matter via his mailing list thread
. There's been talk on our forums
about the work, but nothing official on the Mesa3D development list, which is effectively writing off this work and means it's unlikely we will find a modularized version of Mesa become official anytime soon.
