Marek Olšák on Saturday released the big libdrm 2.4.90 DRM library update that sits between Mesa and other GPU user-space components and the kernel's Direct Rendering Manager code.

The libdrm 2.4.90 update is a big one with quite a number of changes. Among the work for libdrm 2.4.90 are:

- More Intel Coffee Lake PCI IDs was added to the Intel libdrm code.

- A number of fixes for AMDGPU, including fixes/additions needed for the 32-bit pointer support now used by RadeonSI in Mesa Git.

The complete list of the few dozen changes for libdrm 2.4.90 can be found via the mailing list announcement.
