It looks like with the Linux 3.11 kernel there is finally the potential for the VIA DRM graphics driver that's long been in development to enter the mainline kernel source tree. The driver is totally complete but we wanted to merge it so people with newer hardware that has HDMI/DVI-D support can be able to run X windows.
