      AMDGPU DAL/DC - ... Why it's a big issue for me is that there isn't any DP/HDMI audio support with AMDGPU until this lands.
      In my opinion, it is more accurate to state that HDMI audio works with the amdgpu.ko kernel module but the implementation isn't complete yet.

      HDMI audio works fine on my machine (amdgpu.ko, linux-git, R9-390).

      Which audio feature isn't working when using amdgpu.ko on your machine?

        At least for Fiji and Polaris there is zero HDMI/DP audio support working on current AMDGPU.

          I'll be curious to see what impact, if any, comes of the BufferBloat wifi improvements. I tried to read some of the more technical discussions of the work being done. But for anything more sophisticated than "it makes wifi faster", the details were too much for me.

            Umm... Michael, a massive chunk of text is gone:

                Also looking forward to the anti-bufferbloat work in the future.


                Michael, about the site - a while ago you decided to allow anyone to use https:// to navigate around it. It's extremely welcome. The problem is, the 'Phoronix.com' links (e.g. near the top next to 'Forums') default to http and make it redundant unless you're using an addon like 'https everywhere' which forces https if the page exists/allows for it.
                You're on https until you click a link or two and then you won't realise unless you're looking out for it, and as a result it's like it's only half implemented.
                Could you tweak the links around the site to all remain on https, please? Cheers


                It could just be https only. More and more sites do it. And there are about 0 currently supported web browsers that don't support it.

                    The bufferbloat thing is wrong. It's already in there for 4.10. The only thing missing is airtime fairness, which is ath9k specific and coming in 4.11
