The Tamil Driver

Early hacking on the Mali T-series GPUs.

The Tamil driver is to the Mali T series GPUs what the lima driver is for the older Mali M200/400/450 GPUs.

Libv did the preliminary command stream REing work in September 2013, by creating a command stream tracer (capable of capture and replay) and by exposing the binary shader compiler. Over the 2014 end of year period, he then spent some time decyphering various renders, and he will hopefully be showing off the first few native renders at FOSDEM.
