Update i915 GPU driver to Linux 3.8

Our kernel-side i915 GPU driver is getting old: platforms starting with Haswell are not supported at all. Furthermore, it lacks at least one feature required by Mesa 9.2+.

Current status (2015-01-21)

Project finished

Konstantin Belousov committed the i915 kernel driver update in r277487.

Caution: The update is based on commit 4d93914ae3db4a897ead4b, which is part of Linux 3.5, not 3.8.

See Graphics for further informations.
