    Phoronix: Linux 6.3 DRM Brings Intel VPU Driver, Drops Legacy Drivers, Many AMD Updates

    The Direct Rendering Manager (DRM) subsystem updates that also include the new accelerator "accel" subsystem updates have been submitted and subsequently merged for the Linux 6.3 kernel. This pull has a lot of changes to these kernel graphics drivers as well as the first two AI accelerator drivers as part of the new kernel area...

          the question of whether an AI is self-aware is tricky to answer, but ChatGPT is pretty good at writing malware and it's probably only a matter of time before AIs start putting AI into malware that they write.

            That old userspace drivers won't work on the new kernel. Presumably quite old, but i don't know the details.

            Edit, looked it up:
            Originally posted by the patch
            Remove nouveau's support for legacy contexts and buffers. It was
            required by libdrm earlier than 2.4.33, released in March 2012. A
            previous attempt in 2013 to remove the functionality [1] had to be
            reverted [2] as there were still users left. Libdrm 2.4.33 is now
            almost 11 years old and it is time for userspace to move on.‚Äč
