HARDWARE --
The ongoing work for HDMI audio support with the VC4 DRM driver is being wrapped up and will be working in the Linux 4.12 kernel.

HDMI audio will work in conjunction with the open-source VC4 driver when the Linux 4.12 kernel rolls out. This was among the changes queued today in drm-misc-next and in turn called for landing into DRM-Next, which will be merged next month into the Linux 4.12 mainline code-base.

Also with today's drm-misc-next pull are documentation improvements (including some KMS/atomic graphs), various DRM core enhancements, and some work on the smaller DRM drivers.

More details via this pull request.
