update xf86-video-ati to 7.7.1

Simply update the ATI (Radeon) driver to 7.7.1, and while doing so, remove obsolete patch chunks.

QA: Running for months on multiple 10/11-STABLE amd64 systems with Radeon GPUs.

update xf86-video-ati to 7.8.0

Refresh the patch to update to 7.8.0, which was released the next day with support for xorg-server 1.19 as well as 2D compositing improvements, support for TearFree support, etc.

QA: stage-qa and check-orphans are clean, running since the day of release on an 11 amd64 system with xorg-server 1.18

Changing from closed to in progress since the commit was reverted.

Updating drivers was perhaps premature. I had tested these with xorg server 1.18.4 and 1.19, but not 1.17 although this version should work with servers back to 1.10. Also, my testing has been with more current Mesa and the issues reported on the ML sound like problems with OpenGL not working (GL compositors fail).

update xf86-video-ati to 7.8.0

I've updated the patch to account for the bump of PORTEPOCH and added a patch from upstream git which enables Glamor and thus DRI3 by default on R600+ with Xorg server 1.18.3 or newer. I have verified glamor is working and DRI3 is enabled when run with Xorg server 1.18.4 and Mesa 13.0.3.
Comment 5 James Lin 2017-02-20 19:21:27 UTC
It seems that DRI3 doesn't fully work...
Glxgears and Glamor run in DRI2 mode...
So...I prefer DRI2 in xorg.conf...true
