    Running very well for me after they fixed a dma/iommu bug that made amdgpu hang. This release may be one of the best ever, good performance (new cursor fast path is a must), new cool features (freesync!) and no big kernel related problems yet.

            You can find that via my link. How about thanking me noting this instead of whining. I am interested about the code only and do not read people magazines.

              Ah, right, stupid developers with their descriptions & comments.

                That patch was lying in the bit space many weeks. Because it was not from intel, ibm etc big name kernel developers, it needs to have a long explanation and 3rd party testing.
