Fixes Already Queue Up For Graphics Drivers In Linux 4.3

It was just a week ago that the big DRM pull request was mailed in for the Linux 4.3 kernel and now some fixes for the DRM drivers have already been sent in.

DRM subsystem maintainer David Airlie sent in "a bunch of fixes to squeeze in before -rc1." There are three Nouveau driver regressions, a QXL regression fix, a number of Intel i915 DRM fixes, and core DisplayPort / atomic mode-setting fixes.

Those curious about these fixes for the Linux 4.3 DRM code can find them here. From this 4.3 DRM-Next code I had already tested the new R9 Fury support and the re-worked Nouveau driver code as well as Skylake graphics tests.
