Linux Kernel 4.10 is out, and this time Collabora contributed a total of 39 patches by 10 different developers.

You can read more about the v4.10 merge window on LWN.net: part 1, part 2 and part 3.

Now here's a look at the changes made by Collaborans. To begin with, Daniel Stone fixed an issue when waiting for fences on the i915 driver, while Emil Velikov added support to read the PCI revision for sysfs to improve the starting time in some applications.

Emilio López added a set of selftests for the Sync File Framework and Enric Balletbo i Serra added support for the ChromeOS Embedded Controller Sensor Hub. Fabien Lahoudere added support for the NVD9128 simple panel and enabled ULPI phy for USB on i.MX.

Gabriel Krisman fixed a spurious CARD_INT interrupts for SD cards that was preventing one of our kernelCI machines to boot. On the graphics side, Gustavo Padovan added Explicit Synchronization support to DRM/KMS.

Martyn Welch added GPIO support for CP2105 USB serial device while Nicolas Dufresne fixed Exynos4 FIMC to roundup imagesize to row size for tiled formats, otherwise there would be enough space to fit the last row of the image. Last but not least, Tomeu Vizoso added debugfs interface to capture frames CRCs, which is quite helpful for debugging and automated graphics testing.
