One of the long-standing proclaimed benefits of Direct Rendering Manager (DRM) graphics drivers for the Linux kernel was that it would be possible to have "Blue Screen of Death"-like error messages in cases of kernel issues. That feature is now closer to being realized while also advancing another goal of disabling VT support within the Linux kernel.

One of the features that multi-GPU (Optimus/PRIME) owners and other DMA_BUF-using Linux users have been waiting on is cross-device synchronization support. Patches are still flowing for this missing feature and with some luck maybe we will finally see it ready for the Linux 3.15 kernel.

Lennart Poettering has offered an in-depth look at the kdbus IPC system that's an implementation of D-Bus logic into the Linux kernel. Kdbus has been a work-in-progress for a while and is now finally becoming a reality.

When releasing -rc2 kernels, Linus Torvalds is sometimes unhappy with the amount of code changes that happened, but this Sunday evening he seems okay with Linux 3.14-rc2 as it's been a fairly normal week.

Besides needing Mesa 10.1 for AMD Radeon R600/R700 OpenGL support (and GL 3.3 for other AMD drivers/GPUs too), for the older graphics processors you will also need the Linux 3.14 kernel or newer.

For many years (over five years) on Phoronix we have been talking about the Tux3 file-system that has shown much promise -- perhaps more so than Reiser4 -- but still hasn't been mainlined within the Linux kernel. We now have a list of outstanding bugs the developers wish to address before we see a Tux3 implementation within the official Linux kernel.

The latest benchmarks to share with you all are some tests done of all major Linux kernel releases from Linux 3.8 through Linux 3.13 and including the latest drm-next code that will land in the Linux 3.14 kernel. Here's a look at whether Intel Haswell HD Graphics users can expect any more performance improvements out of Linux 3.14 on the graphics front.
