Reading time:

This time round Collabora contributed 33 patches to the 4.16 release of the Linux Kernel, that is a bit lower than usual, probably because our developers decided to enjoy some time off for the end of year holidays instead sending patches upstream :). Our contributions were made by 8 different developers. At the same time we added our Reviewed-by tag to 34 patches and Signed-off-by tag to 74 patches. Last, but not least we stamped 4 patches with a Tested-by tag.

Sebastian Reichel led the way by adding/improving display support on Nokia N950, N9 and Motorola Droid 4 devices, adding support for internal switch of GE's Bx50v3 devices and reviewed a lot of OMAP related changes, not to count his work as power-supply maintainer.

Enric Balletbò i Serra add usb3 and extcon support for Rockchip RK3399 devices, including the Samsung Chromebook Plus device. He also fixed a suspend issue on the same platform. Gabriel Krisman Bertazi fixed i915 to reject modifiers for pipe C on Geminilake.

Daniel Stone fixed a DRM API bug that has been around for a long time; the ioctl to get framebuffer information only supported a single plane, yet didn't reject requests to get information for multi-planar framebuffers. A new ioctl which supports multi-planar framebuffers is currently in the works. On the uvcvideo driver, Nicolas Dufresne added D3DFMT_L8 format support to the Acer Windows Mixed Reality Headset.

Thierry Escande, who unfortunately left Collabora, split out the MFD part of cros_ec into its own module. Romain Perier, who also left us, replaced the old PCI pool API with the new DMA pool API in a few drivers.
