- Improvements to the VBT decoder (Jani).

- New tool to read legacy VGA registers (Ville).

- New helpers in the test library to help deal with debugfs files and the new
  display pipe CRC support (Damien).

- Introduction of a proper naming convention for all the testcases, see
  tests/NAMING-CONVENTION.

- As usual tons of new testcases and improvements and bugfixes to existing ones.

- The testsuite framework itself has gained some regression tests which can be
  run at compile-time with "make check".

- New helpers for the drop_cache kernel interface and use drop_caches(RETIRE) to
  really make sure the gpu is idle in testcases (Oscar Mateo).

- Integration of the gen4+ assembler (Damien).

- Start of a new performance analysis tool from Chris Wilson with front-ends for
  both X11 and plain kms. This uses the perf subsystem and the gpu performance
  counter kernel patches from Chris.

- New register dumper quick_dump from Ben, with lots of work from Damien. This

  will superseed intel_reg_dumper for newer platforms (which are not yet
46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55
  released) since it will allow us to automatically generate register dumps from
  the internal xml register specifications.

- Tools to access the pletoria of new indirect register access functions on
  newer platforms.

- Framebuffer contents dumper to debug some of the nastier corruption issues.
  The advantage here is that this bypasses any userspace drivers and so avoids
  that the corruptions get magically fixed when taking an X screenshot.
