Yet More AMDGPU DAL Patches This Week For Testing

It had been a few weeks since last seeing any new enablement patches for AMD's DAL display abstraction layer code, which is a big requirement for HDMI/DP audio, HDMI 2.0, potential FreeSync support, and also needed for next-generation GPUs. The lack of fresh DAL patches changed though this week when new patches were sent out and already another round of revising to this display code has now been mailed out for review.

AMD developer Harry Wentland on Thrusday sent out the very latest DAL patches. Changed in this new revision are some warning clean-ups, memory leak fixes, transform clean-ups, and other minor fixes.

Those wanting to test out these latest DAL patches for seeing display improvements on your AMDGPU-powered hardware can find them on amd-gfx. DAL won't be able to make it for Linux 4.10 as it's rather late to do that, but hopefully we'll see this work all settled by Linux 4.11, let's hope!
