    Phoronix: Intel ILO Gallium3D Driver Proposed For Removal, But Could Have Future Use-Cases

    Mesa developers are discussing the idea of removing the Intel "ILO" Gallium3D driver from Mesa since it hasn't been maintained in a while and provides only limited functionality...

    The major motivation of having a Gallium Intel driver disappeared when Vulkan was implemented on Intel gfx.

      I kinda like the idea of rewriting ILO to use the TGSI->NIR pass that freedreno already uses. At least the IR conversion code has already been started/completed. The ISL and genxml stuff would take a bit more work, but it sounds like something that someone could turn into a reasonable project

        Everyone likes new toys, but who's going to make them? It seems driver development isn't fun enough to attract a surplus of new developers...
