drm-next has working kevent support following shortly after the drm-v4.7 tag. Your kqfilter implementation would be ideal for 3.8 but is not suitable for drm-next as it substantially modifies vendor code. I think your implementation does in fact work or is very close. Your apparent problem stemmed from an index overwrite in your modified kmscube.c test case.

A working kmscube.c can be found at:


With no arguments it will use select. If you pass -k it will use kevent.
