Marek Olšák has published another big set of fixes/improvements to the open-source RadeonSI Gallium3D driver.

On Friday, Marek posted a set of 15 patches against the RadeonSI Gallium3D driver, which for those out of the loop is the driver that handles AMD's Radeon HD 7000 series GPUs and newer. These 15 patches vary in nature but come down to "random improvements" ranging from improvements/clean-ups to DB registers and MSAA, code clean-ups, and OpenGL Geometry Shader fixes.


Habitual Mesa testers can find these RadeonSI patches on the Mesa mailing list while they'll likely be merged soon for Mesa 10.4-devel.
