The new crocus driver for older Intel iGPUs has been merged!
@emersion so someone from RedHat rewrote intel drivers on top of gallium because Intel didn't want to use gallium in their own drivers?
@wolf480pl @emersion Yeah, everything from broadwell and newer can use a gallium driver called "iris". That was made the default GL driver in Mesa for Intel stuff over a year ago, IIRC (replacing i965 for those newer GPUs). Crocus is for everything else that still has to use i965 (i.e haswell and older)
@emersion so, from what I understand, they want to simplify and unify mesa codebase by using gallium for older GPUs? (I happen to own such laptop btw)
