With the proclamation that there is no intent on mainlining lima, is this indefinitely? Or just at this current point? What would be the roadmap to get lima mainline?
I'm just looking forward to a future where cheap Android devices from china could be running a fully fledged linux desktop environment. Mali seems to be the most prevalent gpu going round on cheap SoCs at the moment.
Oh, those 6-10% gains on glmark2-es2 is with 4x MSAA enabled, as i currently have this hardwired to on (as the hw is designed so that it gets 4xMSAA almost for free). Lima will give everyone the ability to enable 4xMSAA _all_ the time. A potential 60% performance gain under X11 while enjoying 4xMSAA, how nice is that
Did You checked Dolphin recent blog post? It seams some code is shared between Mali and Ardreno binary blobs. Seen it in open source code?
(Oh! And did You think about exposing very good debug info in Your driver via KHR_debug so that actual app devs have reason for pushing for Lima drivers as default?)
