Intel Has More Graphics Driver Code Ready For Linux 4.1
This new Intel DRM-Next pull request sent in today by Intel OTC's Daniel Vetter has Y-tiling support for scanout, removes more of the deprecated user-space mode-setting support, has the first prep patches for dynamic page-table allocation support, DRRS support patches, new frame-buffer compression patches, vblank fixes, and "various patches all over."
More details on this new pull request for merging into DRM-Next that will in turn merge into the Linux 4.1 kernel when its merge window opens can be found via this mailing list post.
