Hello Andreas,

the improved color depth 30 rendering support for nouveau is imho
ready for merging since about a month:


The patch series submitted at 2018-06-13, and the single patch
"loader_dri3: Handle mismatched depth 30 formats for Prime
renderoffload." from 2018-06-04.

All patches have been successfully tested by myself on various
permuations of intel/amd/nvidia hardware and prime combo's of
intel+nvidia, amd+nvidia and nvidia+amd under wayland-weston and x11.
All review comments have been addressed.

Patch [4/5] egl/wayland: Allow client->server format conversion for
PRIME offload. (v2)
Patch [5/5] egl/wayland-drm: Only announce formats via wl_drm which
the driver supports.
Patch loader_dri3: Handle mismatched depth 30 formats for Prime renderoffload.

still need r-b's, although 4/5 got some review from Eric Engestroem,
but no r-b tag so far.

The remaining patches should be straightforward to review, and the
loader_dri3 patch is essentially the same as the already reviewed
[3/5], just applied to x11+prime instead of x11+eglCreateImage().
Cc'ing some people who are somewhat familiar with the patches already.

It would be good to get these merged for 18.2 before some changes in
Mesa break them again, given that they involve a lot of time intense
manual and tedious testing on lots of combos whenever i need to touch
them again. Also, more work to do on the x-server, weston, side, but
that needs a new baseline in Mesa before it makes sense for me to pile
on more work.
