The Texas Instruments' OMAP DRM pull request for the Linux 3.9 kernel is now known. The OMAP DRM graphics driver will leave the kernel's staging area while at the same time picking up support for the OMAP5 SoC.
While Rob Clark has left Texas Instruments to go work on Linux graphics at Red Hat, he still today went through with taking care of the TI OMAP pull request to go into drm-next for Linux 3.9.
With this next kernel, the OMAP DRM driver that provides kernel mode-setting/2D support but no 3D acceleration support will leave the kernel staging area to live formally within drivers/gpu/drm with the rest of the open-source drivers.
