Christian K├Ânig of AMD's open-source driver team landed some improvements this week into Gallium3D's video acceleration state tracker.

For those using Gallium3D video acceleration via the VA-API or VDPAU acceleration APIs with the RadeonSI/R600g or NVC0, there are some state tracker additions and to the Gallium3D VL code to report on: BOB deinterlacing, NV12 post-processing, the code is now thread-safe to avoid potential crashes with MPV, improvements to the motion adaptive deinterlacer, and other improvements/fixes.

This work will be found in Mesa 11.2 though can be found right now if using the Oibaf PPA, Padoka PPA, or other snapshots of the Mesa Git code.
