LINUX KERNEL --
Etnaviv is the latest DRM driver having its code ready for DRM-Next to in turn land for Linux 4.10.

The Etnaviv DRM-Next pull request is not nearly as exciting as MSM getting Adreno 500 series support, a lot of Intel changes, or the numerous AMDGPU changes, but it's not bad either for a community-driven, reverse-engineered DRM driver for the Vivante graphics cores.

The Etnaviv DRM pull has DMA-BUF mmap support, DRM_INSTANCED command support is now allowed past the validator, and there is support for the i.MX6SX. More details via this dri-devel message.
