INTEL --
Intel's open-source Linux developers have filed their patches adding the Skylake GT4 PCI IDs so that the high-end Skylake graphics will be supported by the open-source driver.

Unless a re-branding happens, Skylake GT4 will end up being marketed as the "Iris Pro" graphics of yet-to-be-released Skylake processors. Iris Pro graphics have the dedicated eDRAM and are Intel's fastest graphics of each generation. Once out, the Skylake Iris Pro graphics should be a nice upgrade over the already-impressive Broadwell Iris Pro graphics capabilities.

The PCI IDs added are for 0x1932 and commented as the DT GT4, 0x193B as the Halo GT4, 0x193D as the WKS GT4 (Workstation GT4), and 0x193A as the SRV GT4 (Server GT4).

The IDs are added to the Intel DRM driver patch as well as Mesa and xf86-video-intel. The patches should work their way to mainline soon.
