Radeon & Nouveau X.Org Drivers Get Dirty (Tracking Update)
You'll need to pull down the latest X.Org DDX drivers when it comes time to running X.Org Server Git or what will become X.Org Server 1.18.
The X.Org Server recently received the PRIME rotation support for offloaded outputs, to allow output offloading to work when the screen is rotated 0/90/180/270 degrees with USB and GPU outputs (e.g. the DisplayLink devices). With that work by Airlie, the dirty pixmap tracking code had been rewritten to handle rotation.
The Radeon driver was updated for making use of the new dirty tracking interface changes while this weekend Nouveau is updated too.
