Many AMDGPU & Other DRM Fixes Queued For Linux 4.9
Written by Michael Larabel in Linux Kernel on 3 November 2016 at 08:04 AM EDT. 10 Comments
DRM subsystem maintainer David Airlie submitted on Wednesday quite a number of fixes for the Direct Rendering Manager drivers. There's been fixes queueing up for a while that are now ready to go in after the nasty PAT regression fix has landed.

This latest batch of DRM fixes will address a kernel oops about DisplayPort MST when a display is unplug, more suspend/resume fixes for AMDGPU, a Nouveau power management fix, some i.MX fixes, and other regression/bug fixes.

The complete list of fixes for this DRM pull request can be found on the kernel mailing list and will likely land within a few days. Linus Torvalds is currently at the Kernel Summit and there's been a nasty DDOS attack happening, so probably a quiet few days in Linux mainline Git.
