While the DRM-Next pull request hasn't even been issued yet for the Linux 4.4 merge window, AMD's Alex Deucher has already sent in some extra fixes for the AMDGPU DRM kernel driver.

AMD already sent in their Stoney APU support and various other improvements last month for their Radeon and AMDGPU DRM kernel graphics drivers. Sent in today by Alex are some fixes.

Per the fixes are a warning fix, some fence clean-ups, an oops fix, and Fiji fixes. As part of the Fiji fixes is also updating the golden settings.

Some days ago I tried testing out the Radeon/AMDGPU DRM code for DRM-Next but it didn't turn out too well. Once all this code is mainlined I'll run some fresh benchmarks.
