With the end of feature material for DRM-Next having passed for Linux 4.12, here is a look at some of the changes you will be able to find with the Direct Rendering Manager code when the cycle begins for the Linux 4.12 kernel.
While writing DRM (Direct Rendering Manager) drivers were once a rather daunting task and not really considered much by ARM/embedded developers, over the past few years DRM has evolved a lot as it's picked up new drivers -- especially for today's many ARM SoCs -- and its core infrastructure has improved with picking up many new helpers and other improvements that lower the barrier of entry for DRM development.
Eric Anholt's work on the VC4 Raspberry Pi driver stack continues with his most recent activities being the start of DMA-BUF fencing support and continuing efforts around using the Meson build system in the X.Org world.

Linaro and other ARM/embedded developers continue working on minitty, a minimal TTY implementation for the Linux kernel that's targeting embedded systems.
After Linus Torvalds was upset about the DRM pull request for Linux 4.11, the deadlines of new feature changes for the Direct Rendering Manager (DRM) code targeting Linux 4.12 is being strictly enforced.
If you have never made use of Linux's perf subsystem, it can provide some valuable insight to what is slowing down your game/application.

With the big Radeon/AMDGPU pull request having been accepted into DRM-Next, here are some early tests of this new AMDGPU DRM code to premiere in Linux 4.12.
As reported yesterday, the Radeon RX Vega AMDGPU code was staged for pulling into DRM-Next along with other features that amount to 398,656 lines of new code in the kernel. David Airlie has honored that pull request and that feature work is now residing in DRM-Next.
Thanks to collaboration between Collabora and Google's Chrome OS team, Android is now able to interface with the mainline Linux graphics stack.
