Initial Nouveau DRM Changes Queued For Linux 4.10
With this pull over night the code we originally hoped to see in Linux 4.9 for Nouveau. This new material for Linux 4.10 includes the initial boost support for greater performance but disabled by default as some more great work done by Karol Herbst. There are also related volt/clock changes done by Karol while all the re-clocking and boosting must still be done manually. The boost support also isn't yet optimal but at least will help raise the frame-rates for open-source NVIDIA Linux gamers.
This Nouveau update also adds the Nouveau LED light-up support for relevant graphics cards with that new code addition being done by Martin Peres.
Nothing new on the GeForce GTX 1000 Pascal front for 3D with NVIDIA not yet releasing those signed consumer firmware blobs. Also nothing new to report sadly for GTX 900 Maxwell re-clocking. But hopefully more Nouveau changes will still come to DRM-Next in the next few weeks for Linux 4.10 - Ben Skeggs has been working on atomic mode-setting and DP MST as something exciting on the display front.
