Samsung's Inki Dae has sent in a second pull request for the Exynos DRM driver for work he hopes to land with the DRM pull into the Linux 4.3 kernel.

The main focus of this pull request is upon finishing up -- and enabling -- atomic mode-setting for this Samsung Exynos ARM SoC display driver. This pull enables the atomic mode-setting, adds atomic asynchronous commit support, adds render-node support, and also finishes up the page-flipping support.

Linux 4.3 should be exciting for Samsung Exynos users. All the details via this pull request.
