    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")

    I'm not an expert but If you are curious you can :
    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
