- Improved plane/pipe handling in the igt_kms library (Damien).

  interfaces (Matt Roper).

- New structure logging support for tests. Message at the WARN level be
  reflected in the piglit result, also included igt_warn_on macros to simplify

847 848 849 850 851 852 853 854 855 856
  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.
