AMDGPU DC Gets A Final Batch Of Changes Before Linux 4.15

Written by Michael Larabel in AMD on 22 October 2017 at 07:51 AM EDT. 14 Comments
The AMDGPU DC display code has a final batch of feature updates that were sent in this weekend for DRM-Next staging and is the last set besides fixes for the "DC" code for the 4.15 target.

This latest AMDGPU DC update has 13,902 lines of new code and 6,076 lines of code removed. This now bumps the AMDGPU DC code size to over 130k lines of code just for this new display stack that provides Vega/Raven display support, atomic mode-setting, HDMI/DP audio, and other modern display features including the groundwork for FreeSync.

This newest batch of AMDGPU DC work includes memory leak fixes, S3 fixes, hotplug fixes, DisplayPort Multi-Stream Transport (DP MST) fixes, DML display updates for Raven Ridge, code clean-ups, and other bug fixes.

This latest batch of AMDGPU DC changes can be found via dri-devel. Now all that's left is to hope Linus Torvalds approves of merging AMDGPU DC for the upcoming Linux 4.15 merge window.
