    Will these patches be mainlined into the next kernel?

      That's what remains to be seen.

        Once Vega is released I hope for mainline support too! So far I think I will stick to Polaris until the DC situation is clarified.

          Were there any comments from kernel maintainers about previous sets of patches, and what still prevents them from upstreaming? I mean recent ones, not the earliest attempt which was rejected.

            I find pointing out "bug fixes" to be funny, seeing as pretty much nobody has access to the hardware to experience the bugs in the first place (unless these bugs are why the code has been rejected). It's kind of like selling a used car to someone saying "the tires have been replaced twice" as though the owner will be affected by the first tire change.

              Yeah, much better a single commit whose only description is "AMD code drop for Torvalds".

                  Aren't this code should work with all amdgpu supported devices? Providing HDMI audio for example and so on.
