AMD --
AMD's patches to add support to compiling to native object code for the "Clover" OpenCL state tracker in Mesa's Gallium3D and for the Radeon Gallium3D driver to take advantage of this functionality, has landed.

These native object code patches are important since they can offer better performance and is important for AMD's open-source HSA plans. This is also important given AMD's unified open-source Linux driver plans.

As of yesterday, the Clover native object code generation support is now in Mesa Git in time for the Mesa 10.4 release later this year.
