The article doesn't specifically say if Chris Wilson actually fixed anything. From the article:
Now, this is not meant to dispariage Wilson in any way. He could be setting the stage to get some bug reports rolling in, who knows.Quote:
The GMCH on this pair of chipsets is notoriously incoherent, so the GPU is almost certainly going to hang at some point, though unlikely to hang the system and should automatically disable acceleration (and thence behave identically as if the acceleration was disabled from the start).
But as the article is written, nothing is receiving "support". A currently exiting feature was enabled, nothing more.
(BTW, I hope Wilson is prepared to issue some fixes, even though I don't have one of these chipsets. It would still be a good thing)
