Radeon & AMDGPU DRM Drivers Get More Changes For Linux 4.5

Written by Michael Larabel in Radeon on 7 January 2016 at 06:20 PM EST. 5 Comments
With the merge window expected to open next week for the Linux 4.5 kernel, AMD's Alex Deucher has sent some more last-minute work into DRM-Next.

Alex already sent in the main Radeon and AMDGPU DRM pull request that includes the removal of user-space mode-setting support, landing of the PowerPlay AMDGPU support (though not enabled by default), and other changes.

With the main pull request already in DRM-Next, today's AMDGPU/Radeon DRM pull request for DRM-Next is largely about bug-fixes. This pull has a hearty load of bug fixes and code clean-ups, including DP MST fixes, suspend and resume fixes, PowerPlay fixes, and more. In total there are 44 changes in today's pull request that affect almost one thousand lines of code.

All of the change details via this pull request.
