There already have been the main pull requests for the AMDGPU/Radeon DRM drivers for DRM-Next that in turn will land in Linux 4.8 next week. However, today there's been a last-minute update of more open-source AMD driver changes for this next kernel release.

These last minute changes are for both the Radeon and AMDGPU drivers, but mostly for the latter driver with that being the focus of newer hardware support. There are many fixes as part of this pull request but also some additional power feature enablement for AMD Radeon RX 400 "Polaris" hardware.

A list of the power changes and other fixes can be found from this pull request, which has already landed in DRM-Next for Linux 4.8.
