INTEL --
While the Linux 4.2 kernel merge window isn't even over yet, Intel developers already have new code ready for testing that will be merged eventually for Linux 4.3.

With their updated -testing Git repository, there are DSI improvements, more enablement for Broxton hardware, Cherryview improvements, PPGTT polishing, the kernel mode-setting Kconfig option is no longer exposed as it's a requirement, and there's the continuing code churn around atomic mode-setting.

The full listing of the new code in the -testing repository that's now being solicited for feedback and testing can be found via this mailing list post. Those wishing to engage in testing can find all the fresh code on FreeDesktop.org.
