    Are there actually signs that they are even close to being ready to attempt upstreaming DC?

      Hopefully they are, since they have indicated Vega support is contingent on it.

        If they don't submit another RFC to the mailing list in the next couple weeks, I think you can safely assume there's no way they'll hit the 4.12 kernel.

        Maybe 4.13?

          Michael I wonder if there is a chance you could convince bridgman or one of his fellow AMD people to write up a short guest article about the current state of the new display code and what their current hopes are?

            I wonder how long this can go on until someone from community reads through PR for hardware details, throws away DC/DAL and submits their own PR based on DRM concepts so it has greater likelihood to be merged

                I wouldn't bother. As a Gentoo developer, I just clone the kernel from git. It's a lot faster in the long run, Portage takes ages to install of those kernel source files.

                  Perfect, someone did something about this hypocrisy.

                    Someday users will be free to get some new feature without need to wait a new Kernel release.
