Daniel Vetter has sent in his latest drm-intel-next pull request for DRM graphics driver code targeting the Linux 3.19 kernel.

There's just 2~3 weeks until DRM-Next is closing early again for Linux 3.19 so Vetter on Monday sent in another pull request. There's already been new code queued up that includes initial hardware enablement for Skylake while more code is ready now.

The latest batch of Intel DRM changes for the next kernel cycle include suspend/resume/freeze/thaw unification work, WA list improvements, more kernel documentation of the i915 driver code, 180 rotation support for cursors, and many fixes all over the place.

More information on these Intel DRM improvements planning to come for Linux 3.19 at the end of the year can be found via this pull request.
