Together these drivers provide KMS functionality on Apple Silicom machines. At this point the drivers provide significant power savings when the display is blanked (and during suspend) and backlight control. Some support for HDMI output is also included, but for now only when HDMI is used as the primary output. In the future this should also provide displayport support. This is a port of the the Asahi Linux drivers which can be found at https://github.com/AsahiLinux/linux/tree/asahi-wip Note that this branch gets rebased from time to time. These drivers do *not* bring us GPU accelerated graphics. But there are reports that things run "smoother". There are some known bugs with backlight control: the backlight level may not be restored properly after the display has been blanked, and changing the backlight quickly un succession may break the backlight control. ok jsg@
There have been several followup commits,

Yesterday I committed apldcp(4) and apldrm(4). Together these drivers provide KMS (kernel mode setting) for the display subsystem on Apple M1/M2 machines. These drivers rely on up-to-date apple-boot firmware. If you're not using sysupgrade(4) to update, you'll need to run the following commands before booting a new kernel: # fw_update # installboot sd0 The drivers still have some rough edges. I hope to iron those out in the coming weeks. Cheers, Mark
