Hi Amit,

  are you planning to support DRM/KMS on 4.4 Kernel/Hikey? At LHG we are currently using a 4.5 Kernel snapshot with Wayland/Weston due to incomplete support of DRM/KMS extensions on 4.4. 
The main issue we saw on the 4.4 was the missing VBlank support in the DRM driver.

Hi all,

For the upcoming 16.03 release of the reference platform, we've been
working on a unified kernel that works on Hikey, Dragonboard 410c and
also enables enterprise HW that we have access to (D02, Overdrive, APM

That kernel is now pushed to github[1] to the 96b/releases/2016.03
branch. It is based on the upstream kernel v4.4 and combines the work
from the Hisilicon and Qualcomm landing teams with the enterprise bits
coming from the Linaro Enterprise Group. A big thanks for their
assistance in sorting out various integration issues.

Please note that this kernel tree will now be used only to host a
unified kernel. The Hisilicon landing team has graciously agreed to
modify their workflow and move their kernel tree to the 96boards-hikey
namespace[2] on github.

I'll be talking about the experience of putting together this tree at
Connect BKK16 (including some patch statistics) and soliciting
feedback on the roadmap for this kernel tree - please get in touch if
you have ideas.

Look forward to more information about the release itself from Ricardo later.
