Rob Clark has sent in his feature updates for Freedreno's MSM DRM driver that will target the Linux 4.2 kernel.

Most notable in Rob's MSM-Next code that is being sent in to DRM-Next is support for Qualcomm's Adreno 306 graphics processor, various DSI and 64-bit fixes, NV12MT support, and other random fixes/clean-ups.

The Adreno A306 GPU is for the apq8x16 and upcoming Dragonboard 410c.
