The sun4i DRM driver changes have been submitted for inclusion in DRM-Next to in turn land in Linux 4.10.

The main feature change for sun4i-drm with Linux 4.10 is support for the Allwinner A31 SoC display engine. Supporting the display hardware on the A31 requires less than 100 lines of new code compared to the existing Allwinner DRM display support. The A31 SoC has been available since 2012 and is used by many Chinese tablets.

The DRM-Next pull request for this code can be found via this dri-devel message.
