On top of their earlier i915 changes for 4.14/DRM-Next is now a new ioctl for changing NOA configurations, CCS color compression scanout support, more Cannonlake graphics changes, additional code improvements, an execbuffer speed-up, and various other low-level Direct Rendering Manager driver code enhancements.
