          GCN 1.1 hardware still isn't defaulting to the AMDGPU driver but rather the older Radeon driver.

              Okay, question. So, I know there are "forks" of Linux, such as Linux-libre, where only drivers and such that do not require *any* proprietary blobs are allowed in the kernel tree. And some Linux distro's such as Trisquel use that kernel.
              Is it possible, or permissible for someone to create a "soft-fork" of the kernel without the CoC(Code of Conduct)? Since, a large number of people are not happy with said CoC?

                Fork the kernel before said commit. Have fun.

                  I was not implying that I wanted to nor was going to fork the kernel. I was simply looking for answers to, would such a thing be feasible, or gain traction. Because, I do not/have not contributed to kernel development, the CoC does not affect me that much, and I myself am not willing to maintain a fork of a major project, over an issue that has no bearing on me.
