The Intel Graphics Driver Changes For Linux 3.20
For those that haven't yet caught up with their Phoronix reading with my dozens of Linux 3.20 articles already, including my always close look at the DRM driver changes, Daniel Vetter of Intel has written a new blog post about the Linux 3.20 changes for Intel. Daniel explains the changes at length and are easy to grasp for casual readers.
Among what Daniel views as the "neat stuff" for the Intel DRM driver in Linux 3.20 are atomic plane updates, work towards the atomic mode-setting changes, dual-link DSI support, improved PSR support, continued work on Cherryview and Skylake, execlist support, write-combine CPU memory mappings, and various other changes.
Intel Linux users wishing to learn more about these changes for the Linux 3.20 kernel can read Vetter's blog.
