        Gallium3D state tracker this is increasingly popular with
        That needs a bit of editing -- "tracker. These are" or just remove this and change is to are.

          Actually the patch updating the GPU name table didn't go in. There was talk about possibly using the marketing name field from amdgpu rather than hardcoding all this in nine, and Axel didn't want to hold up the 19.1 branch.

          Everything else made it though.
