Arm Frame Buffer Compression (AFBC) support for Rockchip, coming soon to mainline Linux

Since late 2018, the Mali-DP display drivers, malidp and komeda, have had the ability to use AFBC, and now support for Rockchip (RK3399) is also on its way. While the initial work was done by Rockchip in 2014, it unfortunately wasn’t upstreamed. Efforts to provide AFBC support for Rockchip in mainline have recently concluded and the feature is available in drm-misc-next tree.
