RADEON --
RADV co-founder David Airlie is staging another important feature for this open-source Radeon Vulkan driver: tessellation support.

Airlie has published a set of 25 patches that provide tessellation support for this Vulkan driver. The tessellation support is currently passing Piglit tests but under the Vulkan CTS is still having some failures he is currently pursuing.

The patches for this notable feature can currently be found on Mesa-dev. Hopefully he'll get the work cleaned up and merged ahead of next month's Mesa 17.1 branching.
