Collabora Improves Linux Support for Chromebook Devices in Linux Kernel 4.18

Linux kernel 4.18 was released two weeks ago, and it’s currently the most advanced Linux kernel series featuring mention Spectre V1 and V2 mitigations for 32-bit ARM architectures, Spectre V4 mitigations for ARM64 (AArch64) and ARMv8 architectures, as well as a just-in-time compiler for eBPF programs on 32-bit (x86) architectures. But that’s not all that is new in the Linux kernel 4.18, as Collabora’s devs did a great job to improve support for Chromebook devices by adding support for PWM-powered blacklight devices, a patchset containing various improvements, bug fixes, and cleanups for the Rockchip DRM driver and PSR support, as well as improvements to the defconfig for the Rockchip RK3399 platforms.
