Phoronix: The VC4 Gallium3D Driver Is Still Moving Along For The Raspberry Pi
Eric Anholt has provided a status update concerning the state of Broadcom's VC4 Gallium3D driver that provides open-source graphics support for the Raspberry Pi...
naaah ... raspberry here, raspberry there. I want to see good drivers for my freescale imx6.
I would do it myself but i have no clue how to do such things!
(The author of etnaviv decided to stop finishing the project but instead telling "almost done, do it yourself")

Mainline support for my efika MX smartbook would be great! I could also make some small donation for that. Moreover I know some C so mabey I could help, but don't know where to start...
First: Look at this video : Embedded Linux Conference 2013 - Anatomy of an Embedded KMS Driver
Second : Read kernel documentation : Kernel DRM documentation
Third : Look at etna_viv project on github (wiki, doc, code) : etna_viv
And subscribe to dev mailing list (dri-devel, wandboard-dev, mesa-dev, ).
In staging kernel there are a start of kms driver for imx : imx-drm, but no start for vivante drm driver.
But Vivante have opensource linux kernel driver (not DRM).
And good luck
