    The amdkfd driver has always been in the kernel - it was just built into a separate module from the graphics driver, partly so it could work with both radeon and amdgpu drivers and partly to serve as a relatively HW-independent reference driver for the HSA Foundation.

    The problem is that we can't get Freesync upstream until we have agreement from multiple vendors on a vendor-independent approach. That discussion does seem to be making progress but things like that rarely happen quickly.

      And what about opensourcing the userspace bits of the blob? Kinda like out-of-tree patches? Or would there be too much effort to adapt it to mesa (or what else might be necessary)?

        AFAIK if they are not already open sourced that's just a matter of finding time to do it. Believe the code is in the amdgpu X driver, will check.

          IIRC, they were posted a while ago including mesa patches.
