AMD Readies Initial Batch Of Radeon Graphics Driver Code For Linux 5.19
Today's pull request is the first of a few feature pulls expected over the coming weeks for the AMDGPU/AMDKFD kernel driver updates slated for Linux 5.19. This initial batch isn't too exciting on the end-user front but does include a lot of lower-level code improvements.
The AMDGPU kernel driver updates include USB-C handling updates, PSR2 support for eDP 1.5 DC code work, a wide variety of fixes, continued reworkng of the DC floating point code, RAS support for Video Core Next (VCN) blocks, other display code updates, SR-IOV fixes, and more. Over on the AMDKFD compute driver side are RAS fixes, SVM fixes, asynchronously free events, and other changes.
See this pull request for more details on today's initial batch of AMDGPU/AMDKFD changes slated for Linux 5.19 this summer. Expect more work over the coming weeks but this cycle seems like it will play out mostly for lower-level code improvements in preparation for next-generation hardware enablement and features as part of their new block-per-block IP enabling strategy.
