More atomic mode-setting work is being queued up for eventual integration into what will become Linux 4.4 a few months down the road.

Daniel Vetter at Intel has sent in his first DRM-Misc pull request for DRM-Next, material that will be merged in the Linux 4.4 merge window. There are better atomic helpers for runtime power management drivers, atomic FBDEV, and a variety of other fixes and code improvements.

More details via the pull request.
