I'm not sure what AMD's internal policy might be on this, but NFC re-submits are
usually covered by the "with this/these fixed, you can have my R-b". Which is
the reason I had that kind of language in there. I didn't expect a resend to the
list, to be honest. (And I would guess the same applied to Edward's R-b.)

Oh, should there have been a DRM version check in there then? Like Mesa guards
some features?

In any case I will have to wait for the Vega-upgrade I'm planning for this year
to actually test these features out.
