in linux kernel

My talk about Mainline Explicit Fencing at XDC 2016!

Last week I was at XDC in Helsinki where I presented about the Explicit Fencing work we’ve been doing on the Mainline Linux Kernel in the lastest few months. There was a livestream of all presentations during the conference and recorded sections are available. You can check the video of my presentation. Check out the slides too.

If you want to check the code we’ve been writing they are available here:

Linux Kernel: https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/padovan/linux.git/log/?h=fences

Mesa: https://git.collabora.com/cgit/user/padovan/mesa.git/log/?h=fences

libdrm: https://git.collabora.com/cgit/user/padovan/libdrm.git/log/?h=fences

kmscube: https://github.com/robclark/kmscube/tree/atomic-fence

Soon we will get Explicit Fencing on Android’s drm_hwcomposer as well so expect updates on this blog with more information about that. :)

Also I would like to take the opportunity to thank Collabora for sponsoring my travel to XDC and Martin Peres for organizing such a great conference. It was my first time attending XDC and my time there was absolutely great, I  have learnt a lot about what the Graphics community have been doing lately and I met the people doing this work. I was happy to see a lot of interest from many people around the Explicit Fencing work we’ve doing.
