Written by Michael Larabel in Linux Kernel on 3 May 2016 at 08:18 AM EDT. Add A Comment
The VC4 kernel DRM driver for the Raspberry Pi has seen a few more features primed in time for the Linux 4.7 merge window.

We've already seen the VC4 DRM driver queue up DPI panel support for the code that will be merged into Linux 4.7. Besides the DPI driver, an updated pull request now adds render node support as well s gamma ramp support. The gamma ramp support should fix things up for brightness sliders within full-screen games.

More details on this revised drm-vc4-next code can be found via this kernel mailing list message.
