Intel 2.16.0 driver *IS* available for OpenIndiana distro
Dear Phoronix (Michael L.),
Before the pre-release of OpenIndiana oi_151, I worked on the Solaris port of the Xorg Intel 2.16.0 driver for testing purposes. I can make it available to Phoronix for review on Intel HD 3000 GPU-related platforms using OpenIndiana (or help create a test setup for you).
In your other article, "The Sad State Of GPU Drivers For BSD, Solaris", this article is a bit misleading - but has a good point if OpenSolaris-based distributions want to keep up on Intel graphics development.
I can provide the nouveau stack and libKMS ports as I'll list here:
