ubuntu-drivers-common (1: xenial-security; urgency=medium
* Drop the cpu-microcode.py detection plugin, as exposing microcode
packages will not be necessary once kernel metapackages have a hard
dependency on them
- remove detect-plugins/cpu-microcode.py
- update UbuntuDrivers/detect.py

ubuntu-drivers-common (1: xenial-proposed; urgency=medium
* tests/ubuntu_drivers.py:
- Skip test_system_modaliases_system on s390x.
Fixes FTBFS (LP: #1728547).

* gpu-manager.{c|py}:
- Drop the amdgpu-pro code introduced in the previous upload,
as it will be dealt with in a different upload.
[ Alex Tu ]
* gpu-manager.c:
- Skip bbswitch, and make sure to unload the nvidia driver when
the force-dgpu-on option is enabled (LP: #1728547).

* gpu-manager.{c|py}:
- Add support for forcing the dGPU on on hybrid systems.
Creating an empty file named "force-dgpu-on"
in the /usr/share/gpu-manager.d directory will force the dGPU
on in power saving mode (LP: #1728547).
- Sync amdgpu-pro support from 17.10.
[ Kai-Heng Feng ]
* debian/control:
- Add build dependency on libkmod-dev.
* gpu-manager.c:
- Detect and handle switchable graphics with the amdgpu-pro driver.
AMDGPU-Pro has its own script to switch between powersaving and
performance mode (LP: #1731873).
Some machines allow enabling switchable graphics, or disabling
the iGPU completely, thus leaving only the dGPU on. This new code
simply detects the different profiles supported by AMD, and
enables powersaving mode when possible.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1: xenial-proposed; urgency=medium
* gpu-manager.{c|py}:
- Add support for using custom xorg.confs with the nvidia
driver (LP: #1667198).
Custom xorg files can be named "non-hybrid" (for non hybrid
systems), "hybrid-performance", and "hybrid-power-saving",
and will have to placed in the /usr/share/gpu-manager.d
The directory can be overridden by passing another directory
along with the "--custom-xorg-conf-path" parameter.
- Add tests for the custom xorg.confs code and for amdgpu-pro
hybrid support.

[ Alberto Milone ]
* gpu-manager.c:
- Fix memory leak in get_alternatives(). Make sure to always free
alternatives->current_core and alternatives->current_egl.
- Partially drop the drm code, and get information about connectors
from sysf. This fixes a long standing performance issue (LP: #1586933).
- Disable persistence mode before powering down the dGPU.
If persistence mode is not disabled, gpu-manager will not be able to
unload the nvidia module (LP: #1619306).
- Make sure to load and unload nvidia-drm. This fixes a problem that
prevents the dGPU from being powered off in hybrid systems with
recent nvidia drivers (LP: #1619306).
[ Ying-Chun Liu (PaulLiu) ]
* Quirks/quirkinfo.py:
- Catch and ignore UnicodeDecodeErrors in dmi info, as some machines
may report board_name as ffffffffffff0a to mean empty, and this
causes an error in python 3 (LP: #1320868).
2016-04-29 - Alberto Milone <alberto.milone@canonical.com>
ubuntu-drivers-common (1: xenial-proposed; urgency=medium
* gpu-manager.c:
- Pass the arguments in the correct order when getting
the list of alternatives (LP: #1575960).
Thanks to Rafał Cieślak for the fix.
