Hello list,

The candidate for the Mesa 18.3.4 is now available. Currently we have:
 - 34 queued
 - 1 nominated (outstanding)
 - and 16 rejected patches

The current queue consists of:

A fix in the XvMC state-tracker, which was causing some video attributes to
not take affect. On the video front the VAAPI state tracker has seen
improvements with VP9 streams while the amdgpu driver advertises all available

On Intel side we have compiler fixes and extra PCI IDs for Coffee Lake and 
Ice Lake parts. In the Broadcom drivers a couple of memory leaks were

Other drivers such as radeonsi, nouveau and freedreno have also seen some
love. The RADV driver has seen addressed to compile correctly with GCC9
amongst other changes.

The Xlib based libGL have been addressed to work with X servers, which lacks
the MIT-SHM extension such as XMing.

To top it up we have a few fixes to the meson build system.

For more details, take a look at section "Mesa stable queue" below.

Testing reports/general approval
Any testing reports (or general approval of the state of the branch) will be
greatly appreciated.

The plan is to have 18.3.4 this Saturday 16th February, around or shortly
after 17 GMT.

If you have any questions or suggestions - be that about the current patch
queue or otherwise, please let me know.
