Intel has already queued up a lot of DRM graphics driver changes for Linux 4.5 and now they've sent out a DRM-Next pull request for another serving of updates for this next kernel cycle.

Daniel Vetter on Friday sent in more drm-inte-next fixes to David Airlie for DRM-Next, which in turn will go into Linux 4.5. The latest work here are more Panel Self Refresh (PSR) fixes, FIFO underrun fixes, runtime power management fixes, modeset sequence fixes, frame-buffer compression fixes, DMA-BUF/Fence-based cross-driver synchronization for the i915 page-flipping path, and other fixes.

More details about this second Intel DRM update for Linux 4.5 can be found via Daniel's pull request.
