* gpu-manager.c:
  - Rely on /var/log/syslog to get information about unloaded modules.
    This should minimise the current slowdown on boot (LP: #1307069).
  - Switch from intel to modesetting as the default driver on hybrid
    intel/nvidia systems because of a regression in the intel driver
    (LP: #1507676).

debian/tests/system: Drop the nvidia package tests; they are now tested
through autodep8 on every kernel and dkms change, so we don't have to rely
on this hard to maintain autopkgtest any more. Also drop most other driver
package tests for the same reason; just keep the "fglrx" test to get a
full end-to-end test with "ubuntu-drivers".

* tests/ubuntu_drivers.py: Reset the apt.Cache() cache between tests, as
  this is unreliable with tests that keep switching apt's root directory.
  (LP: #1487223)
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.6 (no changes necessary).

[ Alberto Milone ]
* share/hybrid/gpu-manager.c, tests/gpu-manager.py:
  - Use SNA in powersaving mode for pxpress, and keep UXA
    only for performance mode (where it's required). This
    fixes a number of HWE issues (e.g. LP: #1472972).
* Quirks/quirkreader.py:
  - Set the encoding when opening the file. This fixes a
    crash in Wily.

[ Martin Pitt ]
* debian/rules: Ensure that $PATH includes /sbin:/usr/sbin, as the tests
  require several programs from that (e. g. modinfo, aptd). Fixes FTBFS due
  to test failures. (LP: #1487223)

87. By Alberto Milone on 2015-08-07

* gpu-manager.c:
  - Check that we have write access to the log. If writing to
    the log fails, we show a warning, and use stdout instead.
    (LP: #1298693)

86. By Alberto Milone on 2015-05-08

* gpu-manager.c, gpu-manager.py:
  - Use the amdconfig tool to configure multi-amd PXpress. This
    fixes a problem where the AMD control panel won't show an
    option to switch between power saving mode and performance
    mode on AMD+AMD hybrid systems (LP: #1410801).
  - The tests now reflect a more relaxed approach so that we
    do not overwrite configurations that are not supported (such
    as multiple xscreens set in the xorg.conf).

Call dh_systemd_enable after installing gpu-manager.service, so that the
unit actually gets enabled. Also quiesce the confusing error messages
about nonexisting binary package directories. (LP: #1443364)

84. By Martin Pitt on 2015-04-10

debian/tests/system: Re-enable fglrx tests and update them for the
fglrx-core split.

83. By Martin Pitt on 2015-04-10

* debian/tests/system: Don't use --auto-remove on purge, to avoid removing
  our test dependencies.
* debian/tests/system: Set noninteractive debconf frontend, to avoid debconf
  error messages.
* debian/tests/system: Mark fglrx tests as expected failures, the current
  fglrx driver is known to be incompatible with current X.org.

82. By Alberto Milone on 2015-04-09

* gpu-manager.c:
  - Do not abort when dealing with sddm. This allows users to get
    partial support for hybrid graphics when using sddm instead of
    lightdm.
