    The talk was at FOSDEM, not LCA, so no. We can be thankful to Michael that we have any coverage at all of this event.

    AMD didn't even have any developers in attendance at FOSDEM... (or even LCA as far as I know.)

    Nouveau developers were there but the only NVIDIA-related talk was on Tegra.

    IIRC Marek added some threading code to the r300g and r600g drivers a year or so ago, although I'm not 100% sure about r600g. Believe the approach was that most of the Mesa code ran in the application thread while command submission to the kernel driver and associated kernel processing happened in a separate helper thread.
