I have merged up through v4.7 and fixed a number of issues.  I've also added kevent support to drm and merged in evdev, so all the kernel dependencies for Wayland are enabled by default in GENERIC. I've tagged the last commit as drm-v4.7-final as following that I will start merging v4.8-rc1 changes.

With the final change Wayland now works on post-Haswell hardware:

Unfortunately I still see corruption when playing multiple videos on chrome (chrome has hardware accelerated video playback). FF (not offloaded) does not show corruption, but requires the use of a compositor to avoid tearing to keep frame updates in sync with screen refresh.

The scope of my personal testing is limited so please report any regressions with respect to drm-next-4.6.

I then integrated the ~800 commits to drm / i915 / radeon / amdgpu , testing periodically along the way and updating the linuxkpi as needed. I've just tagged the drm-next branch with drm-4.7-rc1 to indicate that it is in sync with 4.7-rc1 upstream.
