Nice one thanks !
Did those patch(es) ever made it to the list ? Mind giving them a tiny
bit of cleanup (move tests to exynos, drop duplication, C99
initializers) and sending them over ?

On a mildly related note:
The tizen people like excessive rebasing :( Another alternative would
be to send fixes upstream and keep their changes within ./packaging,
which will allow clean merges.

Great. Tobias sent a few more drm/exynos and libdrm (g2d utilities)
patches that've been around for a while :(

Perhaps he can re-spin then and/or send a list with outstanding ones ?
