Intel GPU Tools is a collection of tools for development and testing of the
Intel DRM driver. There are many macro-level test suites that get used against
the driver, including xtest, rendercheck, piglit, and oglconform, but failures
from those can be difficult to track down to kernel changes, and many require
complicated build procedures or specific testing environments to get useful
results. Therefore, Intel GPU Tools includes low-level tools and tests
specifically for development and testing of the Intel DRM Driver.

Intel-gpu-tools 1.16 release is available with the following changes: 
- Various new tests and tools

- New statistical analysis functions. (Damien Lespiau)

- New benchmark tests. (Chris Wilson)

- Old register tools that were superseded by intel_reg have been removed.

- Various tests have been marked "basic", to indicate they are suitable for
  use in basic acceptance testing. (Jesse Barnes)

- Per-ring gem_storedw_loop tests combined into a single test with subtests.
  (Jesse Barnes)

- New "aubdump" tool, used to launch an application and capture rendering to
  an AUB file. (Kristian Høgsberg Kristensen)

- Cherryview support added to intel_display_poller. (Ville Syrjälä)

- Skylake and Broadwell support added to gem_gpgpu_fill tests.
  (Dominik Zeromski)

- Support for running core drm tests on any platform. (Micah Fedke)

- Many other bug fixes


  1. A simple overlay shows current GPU activity. An asynchronous overlay is used, rendered by the CPU
    to avoid introducing any extra work on the GPU that we wish to monitor. Enable SNA for proper use.
  2. intel-gen4asm is a program to compile an assembly language for the Intel 965
    Express Chipset. It has been used to construct programs for textured video in
    the 2d driver.
