Thanks Marek !

In all honesty I was secretly hoping that we'll get Dave/Bas RADV for
12.1. With the topic of which would be 'the default' Vulkan driver for
ATI/AMD hardware to be considered at a later stage.

That said here are the tentative dates:

Oct 7/14 2016 - Feature freeze/Release candidate 1
Oct 14/21 2016 - Release candidate 2
Oct 21/28 2016 - Release candidate 3/final release

Fwiw I'm still in favour of getting RADV in even if it's not
perfect/feature complete. Devs, let me know if there's a "must have"
feature that we want in 12.1.
