When I said to follow the standard process here that's what I meant,
yes.  It's basically just the graphics subsystem that does something
different here, and note that if you are going to include a changelog
(either in the normal place or the DRM place) it really ought to
actually describe the changes that have been made - the above doesn't
reflect the changes that were made at all.

DRM is a special case here since there has always been work to share
bits of the code with other operating systems, the licensing for DRM is
very unusual within the kernel.  A quick sampling of drivers suggests
that this license is not universally used there either.

There is also the issue I raised with the fact that your non-GPL license
statement does not appear to correspond to the MODULE_LICENSE() that
you've included which claims the code is GPLed.
