HARDWARE --
Maxime Ripard of Free Electrons has sent in the Allwinner DRM driver pull request that will ultimately land for the Linux 4.9 kernel merge window.

New to report on for the young Allwinner DRM driver is support in the sub4i-drm code for the Allwinner A33 SoC. Aside from the Allwinner A33 SoC, there are various other bug fixes and updates.

More details via this pull request to DRM-Next. For those not keeping track, the Allwinner A33 is a quad-core SoC powered by the ARM Crtex-A7. The A33 does have a Mali 400 MP2, but the DRM driver work is just about the display-side and not the Mali GPU.
