    Phoronix: AMDKFD Updates For Linux 4.17 Round Out dGPU Support

    Earlier this month was the big batch of AMDKFD driver updates for DRM-Next / Linux 4.17 for getting the Radeon discrete GPU support squared away. Now coming in as a late pull request is the rest of that dGPU work for AMDKFD...

    Dave Airlie merged the pull request to his drm-next tree, so unless something really out of the ordinary happens, the GPUVM support will be included in 4.17

        Happy to do this job, but the thanks should really go to AMD people who worked hard on this.

          We all know, but we all 'know', too that you were a former AMD man and you are still one of the maintainers!
          Next step for me: clone 4.17-drm-next and the right ROCm git tree

          Addendum
          Hopefully my 'old' Xeon X3470 (Nehalem) PCIe 2.0 only system works together with my RX580 even without PCIe 3.0 atomics.

            Same situation with my dual Opteron PCIe 2.0 system and RX580 8GB.

              I got it worse with a SandyBridge E5 Xeon. It even has PCIe 3.0 and is still pretty fast, especially with the NVMe card I've got in a x4 PCIe 3.0 slot!

              Thing is, I don't want to replace it before there's hardware with proper Specter & Meltdown fixes.
