Mesa 17.0.6 Is Coming Soon with Polaris 12 Support for Radeon RADV Vulkan Driver

The first thing AMD Radeon users should expect from the Mesa 17.0.6 point release, which could also be the last in the series, is Polaris 12 support in the Radeon RADV Vulkan driver, something that those privileged to use the Mesa 17.1 stable branch that was released the other day are already enjoying. Moreover, the RadeonSI driver received a workaround for Polaris 12 support addressing a hang, along with an adjustment to the buffer size computation of the ESGS ring on VI, as well as a fix for an issue with the gl_PrimitiveID in tessellation with instanced draws.
