drm/doc: Add RFC sectiontopic/i915-gem-next-2021-03-26
Motivated by the pre-review process for i915 gem/gt features, but probably useful in general for complex stuff. v2: Add reminder to not forget userspace projects in the discussion (Simon, Jason) v3: Actually put this into a folder, so we have it all (.rst files and headers for kerneldoc) contained somewhere separate (Jason) Cc: Simon Ser <> Cc: Jani Nikula <> Cc: Joonas Lahtinen <> Cc: Rodrigo Vivi <> Cc: Jason Ekstrand <> Cc: Dave Airlie <> Acked-by: Jason Ekstrand <> Acked-by: Simon Ser <> Acked-by: Rodrigo Vivi <> Acked-by: Dave Airlie <> Signed-off-by: Daniel Vetter <> Link:

+GPU RFC Section
+For complex work, especially new uapi, it is often good to nail the high level
+design issues before getting lost in the code details. This section is meant to
+host such documentation:
+* Each RFC should be a section in this file, explaining the goal and main design
+ considerations. Especially for uapi make sure you Cc: all relevant project
+ mailing lists and involved people outside of dri-devel.
+* For uapi structures add a file to this directory with and then pull the
+ kerneldoc in like with real uapi headers.
+* Once the code has landed move all the documentation to the right places in
+ the main core, helper or driver sections.
