Atomic display update support has finally landed in the upstream DRM graphics kernel subsystem and a bunch of drivers are converted or in the process of being converted. This talk will look at the internals from a driver's writer point of view, covering the atomic helper library, how it all can be (ab)used for certain cases and how to implement certain common hardware features.
