Import patches-unapplied version 1:0.2.91.12 to ubuntu/trusty-proposed

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 0564429e1ec1b6478ded7b77563b8060defb8399

New changelog entries:
  * Backport from yakkety version 1:0.4.22: gpu-manager.c, gpu-manager.py:
    - Add all the necessary changes for nvidia and hybrid graphics to
      handle the new kernel modules and the EGL alternatives (LP: #1642662).
      Also detect the new amdgpu driver.
    - Leave gdm support disabled, since gdm is still missing a patch.

Import patches-unapplied version 1:0.2.91.11 to ubuntu/trusty-proposed

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 1684f518ae0fd7a7d70fa3ef60baab0565f260a5

New changelog entries:
  * Backport from utopic version 1:0.2.98.4: debian/tests/system,
    tests/ubuntu_drivers.py, UbuntuDrivers/detect.py:
    - Revert the previous changes that made us switch from bcmwl to
      the open driver, as the latter (in order to be a full replacement)
      seems to require firmware that we cannot include in the Ubuntu
      image because of licensing issues (LP: #1481018).

Import patches-unapplied version 1:0.2.91.10 to ubuntu/trusty-proposed

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 80fd50b2968328832f2286adb20bc71f25c9ce5a

New changelog entries:
  * 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).

Import patches-unapplied version 1:0.2.91.9 to ubuntu/trusty-proposed

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 8c0bf0222cce5eadfd880f6dac3ced00ee8add71

New changelog entries:
  * sl-modem plugin: Keep environment for aplay, just ensure it's using the C
    locale. This avoids staring pulseaudio twice and causing races for
    attaching devices to pulseaudio. (LP: #1296425)

8c0bf02... by Alberto Milone on 2014-12-10

Import patches-unapplied version 1:0.2.91.8 to ubuntu/trusty-proposed

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: eced7c43f470ead61648790491a1ea0113542565

New changelog entries:
  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Refine checks for blacklisted modules, so that we don't end up
      catching false positives (LP: #1376966).
      Thanks to Pär Lindfors for the patch.

eced7c4... by Alberto Milone on 2014-08-29

Import patches-unapplied version 1:0.2.91.7 to ubuntu/trusty-proposed

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 621742d68d5eac93d1507e41330debf53309dca4

New changelog entries:
  * gpu-manager.c, gpu-manager.py:
    - Add support for testing core alternatives. This will be needed
      by fglrx.
    - Fix a regression that caused the gpu-manager to switch to mesa
      after enabling fglrx on hybrid systems (LP: #1310489). Also
      add a test case so that we don't regress in the future.
    - Check that either fglrx or nvidia is set in xorg.conf when
      xorg.conf is needed.
    - Check if kernel modules are blacklisted before choosing the
      driver (LP: #1310489).
    - Enable only GPUs with open drivers that have connected outputs.
      Attaching to GPUs that have no connected outputs would result
      in a black screen.
    - Allow RandR offloading even without bbswitch (LP: #1349282).
    - Fall back to mesa when failing to enable prime.
    - Do not try to enable prime if the nvidia driver is older than
      331.
    - Do not abort if the settings for prime cannot be found.
      Try to create the file before failing.

621742d... by Alberto Milone on 2014-06-06

Import patches-unapplied version 1:0.2.91.6 to ubuntu/trusty-proposed

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 42e223961e270783d732bb9cf147db49b6cc8b5d

New changelog entries:
  * UbuntuDrivers/detect.py, debian/tests/system, tests/ubuntu_drivers.py:
    - Do not autoinstall the broadcom driver. The open driver should be a
      better solution now (LP: #1306928), as the binary driver prevents
      a number of systems from using the wireless card.
    - Autoinstall linux-firmware-nonfree. This will help now that we no
      longer autoinstall Broadcom's binary driver.
    - Fix the relevant tests now that linux-firmware-nonfree has replaced
      bcmwl.
  * gpu-manager.c, tests/gpu-manager.py:
    - Ignore CRT displays when using PRIME. This works around systems whose
      BIOS provides a ghost output (LP: #1296020).
    - Check that we don't remove xorg.confs on 1st boot (as per the
      previous SRU).
    - Try harder when loading bbswitch (LP: #1310023). If loading bbswitch
      fails try with or without the "skip_optimus_dsm=1" option. Also, make
      sure that we trim dmi resources or matching will give us false
      positives.
    - Switch to intel/SNA for optimus systems (LP: #1326257).
    - Make sure to unload nvidia-uvm or nvidia won't be
      unloaded.
    - Make sure to walk properly the /dev/dri dir. This
      prevents the program from stopping when, for example
      /dev/dri/card1 is available while /dev/dri/card0 is
      not.

Import patches-unapplied version 1:0.2.91.5 to ubuntu/trusty-proposed

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 579c7b3cf5fba88a9a5433bb766657f309a08e12

New changelog entries:
  * During first boot, don't remove existing xorg.conf. (LP: #1307546)

Import patches-unapplied version 1:0.2.91.4 to ubuntu/trusty-proposed

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: e322c3627ef3093928382161ea1837d780899e15

New changelog entries:
  * Force removal of jockey on upgrades. It has been replaced with
    ubuntu-drivers-common two cycles ago, removed from trusty, and now just
    crashes due to API changes in aptdaemon. (LP: #1216193)

e322c36... by Alberto Milone on 2014-04-09

Import patches-unapplied version 1:0.2.91.3 to ubuntu/trusty-proposed

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: d03b96b03f7c122abacaed4297ce6b1eda3d6399

New changelog entries:
  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Move away the xorg.conf if mesa is selected as a
      fallback and binary drivers are still in use in the
      xorg.conf. This will prevent X from failing when
      users on hybrid systems uninstall a binary driver.
