AMDGPU DC Display Code Update Enables Newer AMD GPUs on RISC-V

SiFive has addressed compatibility issues between AMD’s Linux graphics drivers and newer GPUs on RISC-V architecture. The problem, linked to AMDGPU’s “DC” display code, was resolved by introducing kernel-mode FPU support for RISC-V. SiFive’s patches, currently under review, are expected to be part of the Linux 6.8 kernel. Once implemented, this update will allow the latest AMD GPUs to seamlessly operate on RISC-V using open-source drivers.
