NVIDIA Posts Tegra Gallium3D Patch For K1+ Support
NVIDIA has out a wonderful Thanksgiving surprise... New Mesa code for Tegra K1 GPUs and newer!
While NVIDIA has already pushed Nouveau Gallium3D support patches for Tegra K1 after providing Tegra K1 DRM/KMS kernel driver support, there's more code coming out today.
NVIDIA's Thierry Reding sent out a nearly two thousand line Mesa patch that introduces a new Tegra Gallium3D driver. This "Tegra" code at gallium/drivers though isn't a complete 3D driver -- the Tegra K1+ still use the NVIDIA NVC0 Gallium3D driver for the actual rendering. This patch sets up a screen and forwards on the work to the Nouveau Gallium3D driver given that the Tegra K1 uses a Kepler-derived graphics processor. This work is needed since the GPU and display are exposed as separate devices by this NVIDIA ARM SoC.
