    Elder kernels will probably be supported by building an out-of-tree module, as for the catalyst or nvidia driver...

      What HSA feature does Kaveri miss that Carrizo has?

        I beleive it's that Carrizo has a southbridge integrated on the CPU die.

        I am curious about the socket it might use, or if it's a BGA.

          With regards the difference between HSA Ready and Compliant, I asked AMD what made Kaveri different in that regard. The answer was straightforward enough: Carrizo is able to perform GPU context switching, allowing a GPU state-save and state-restore, something Kaveri is unable to do and offering a solid hint that Carrizo's GPU is based on AMD's GCN 1.2 architecture.

            Full preemption of GPU tasks.

                Isn't the Carrizo chips going to be on laptops only for a while? Cause that would suck.

                  Yeah. Just like Broadwell is only available on laptops for a while. Highest margin, lower core-count, and its where today's demand is.

                    I think the exact statement is that there won't be a socketed part at launch (AFAIK that is because a new socket & mobo would be required due to increased integration) but I imagine it will show up in more than just laptops anyways.
