Geminilake Support Added To The Intel X.Org Driver
The xf86-video-intel X.Org driver is only seeing a handful of commits each month while there still is no sign of the long-awaited 3.0.0 release. Today's updates to the Intel DDX driver has a few SNA fixes, adds in all the known Geminilake PCI IDs at this point, and also finally adds the marketing names for Skylake/Kabylake/Apollolake/Broxton.
The Geminilake support has already been brought up elsewhere in the stack including Mesa and the pending kernel patches. Geminilake is the successor to Apollo Lake and is expected to arrive in the form of 4~6 Watt SoCs while they are rumored not to be shipping until late in 2017.
Those wanting the latest changes can fetch xf86-video-intel Git as there's still no sign of the next release and it's been two years now since the last 3.0 release candidate.
