+- vc4: Add a test for BO lookup failure error path (Eric Anholt)
+- tests/gem_mocs_settings: Remove direct register tests,
+and added RC6 tests (Peter Antoine)
+- Check for libdrm_intel and build if present, Add stubs for intel_bufmgr
+(Robert Foss)

+- Various documentation improvements (Daniel Vetter)
+- Added new tests: tests/kms_rmfb and tests/kms_atomic_transition, a test for
+fastboot, tests/kms_panel_fitting, and a test that only tries to set the
+current property values back, tests/kms_properties. Various improvements to
+tests/kms_cursor_legacy (Maarten Lankhorst)
+- lib/igt_kms: Use pipes for committing, not outputs and assign pipe properties
+in pipe init and many other improvements (Maarten Lankhorst)

+connected display. (Jim Bride)
+- Multiple improvements to lib/igt_kms (Robert Foss)
+- lib/igt_aux: Framework for measuring latency in raising signals (Chris
+- Various modifications to intel_chipset: Replace lookup of GT size with
+computation, remove unused PCI_CHIP ids, converting platforms names using
+device info (Chris Wilson)
+- tests/kms_chv_cursor_fail: Run the tests with fewer steps
+(Maarten Lankhorst)
+- lib/intel_chipset: Add more Kabylake PCI IDs and removed PCI IDs that are no

+constrains on hang detection (igt/gem_reset_stats) (Mika Kuoppala)
+- Added tests/kms_invalid_dotclock, a test that makes sure every modeset gets
+rejected by the kernel if the requested dotclock is beyond the hardware
+capabilities (Ville Syrjälä)
+- tests/gem_stolen: Verify contents of stolen-backed objects across
+hibernation, fix for no_mmap subtest and check for available stolen memory size
