Inki Dae has submitted the Exynos DRM driver changes to DRM-Next as material for the upcoming Linux 4.11 cycle.

This Exynos DRM display driver continues marching to its own beat though is not as full-featured as say Freedreno's MSM or VC4 for the Raspberry Pi, not to mention not supporting the 3D/GPU hardware. The main addition to the Exynos DRM code for Linux 4.11 is adding 4K/UHD support for TM2/TM2E development boards. With this code those TM2/TM2E boards will be able to handle running at the 4K resolution. Aside from that, there are just a few other changes for going into DRM-Next.

Those interested in Exynos DRM support can find out the changes in full via the pull request.
