TinyDRM has been queued in DRM-Next for landing with the in-development Linux 4.11 kernel.

TinyDRM aims to provide "a very simplified view of DRM for displays that has onboard video memory and is connected through a slow bus like SPI/I2C." TinyDRM includes SPI and MIPI-DBI support.

The initial consumer of this TinyDRM infrastructure is supporting the Multi-Inno MI0283QT display, which is powered by a ILI9341 MIPI DBI compatible display controller. This TinyDRM work was spearheaded by Noralf Trønnes who has also worked on patches for supporting several Adafruit TFT displays with TinyDRM.

TinyDRM dates back about a year and is great to see it will be landing with Linux 4.11. More details via this honored pull request.
