Linux 6.2 To Put The Raspberry Pi In Good Shape For 4K @ 60Hz Displays
Sent out today was the latest batch of drm-misc-next updates targeting the Linux 6.2 kernel and for now being queued into the DRM-Next tree. The Broadcom VC4 DRM/KMS driver most notably used by the Raspberry Pi single board computers has received several improvements.
Most notable with the Broadcom VC4 driver work for Linux 6.2 is fixing 4K @ 60Hz detection for the Raspberry Pi as well as reworking that 4K detection code in general, better core clock calculation, and other increased checks around 4K resolutions. Long story short, this should now put the Raspberry Pi in good shape with Linux 6.2+ for driving 4K displays.
This pull request of new DRM-Misc-Next material also has cursor improvements for VMware's VMWGFX driver, a new API for the Raspberry Pi firmware driver, various DRM core fixes, and other minor enhancements.
