Thomas, do you think it will be possible for you to take the fix patches
1-11 into the drm-fixes or would you prefer me to re-send them separately?

The VirtIO patches 12-13 also are good to go into drm-next, IMO.

I'm going to factor out the new dma-buf convention into a separate
patchset, like was suggested by Christian. But it will take me some time
to get the dma-buf patches ready and I also will be on a vacation soon.

At minimum nothing should hold the fixes, so will be great if they could
land sooner.

Thank you!
