Mesa 17.0.5 to Improve RadeonSI, Intel i965 and Vulkan Drivers for Linux Gaming

Mesa 17.0.5 should be available as soon as today, and it’s the fifth bugfix release in the series, coming about two weeks after the launch of Mesa 17.0.4, which added various improvements to the Intel OpenGL and ANV Vulkan drivers, as well as RadeonSI, Radeon RADV Vulkan, Nouveau, Galleon, and Freedreno drivers. There are 38 queued changes and 7 nominated (outstanding) in the changelog attached at the end of the article, showing us that the Intel ANV Vulkan driver received some attention during this cycle, including some corrections for flusing the cache for both texture and VF, and support for disabling CCS on BDW input attachments.
