The Vivante DRM Driver Called For Pulling Into Linux 4.5
Etnaviv has been in the works for years as both an open-source DRM kernel driver and a user-space Mesa driver for providing OpenGL support. The driver has been making much progress over this year especially and now Lucas feels that it's ready to go mainline. David Airlie hasn't yet pulled the new driver into DRM-Next, but we'll continue monitoring over the next few days.
The Etnaviv DRM driver is known to work in Vivante GPU IP cores such as the Freescale i.MX6 and Marvell Dove. Adding this driver is just over seven thousand lines of new code. More details on the Etnaviv DRM driver can be found via the pull request on dri-devel.
