Collabora developers contributed 48 patches to kernel 4.3 as part of our current projects.
Danilo worked on the kernel doc scripts to add cross-reference links to html documentation and arguments documentation in struct body. While Sjoerd Simons fixed a clock definition in rockchip and a incorrect udelay usage for the stmmac phy reset delay.
Tomeu fixed gpiolib to defer probe if the pin controller isn’t available, added another fix to chipidea USB to defer probe of usbmisc hasn’t been probed yet. On Tegra Tomeu worked to support to gpio-ranges property. Still on Tegra cpuidle_state.enter_freeze() was added.
Gustavo Padovan did a lot of exynos DRM work, with the most important changes being improvements to atomic modesetting, including the asynchronous atomic commit in exynos, in async mode we just schedule the atomic update and return right away to the userspace, in a similar way that PageFlips works in the old API. In this release the exynos atomic modesetting interface was enabled for userspace usage. Another important set of patches was the removal of structs exynos_drm_display and exynos_drm_encoder layers which greatly improved the code making it cleaner and easier to use. Apart from that there is also a few cleanup and fixes.
