BSD --
Fran├žois Tigeot, the developer that's been prolific in porting the DRM/KMS code from Linux to DragonFlyBSD, now has the Radeon DRM code matching that of the Linux 3.17 kernel.

This rebase of DragonFly's Radeon DRM code comes with 13370 insertions and 6260 deletions. With this update, the KMS system console is working, 2D tiling now works out-of-the-box on more hardware, and other improvements. However, the TTM memory management code still needs to be updated and other features are still missing.
