Bug#840257: ITP: mali-driver -- Mali GPU binary drivers

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Wookey <wookey@debian.org>

  Package name    : mali-driver
  Version         : 0.1
  Upstream Author : ARM Limited
  URL             : http://malideveloper.arm.com/develop-for-mali/features/mali-t6xx-gpu-use
  License         : ARM Proprietary
  Programming Lang: Binaries
  Description     : Mali GPU binary drivers

This binary driver provides support for ARM mali graphics hardware.
It includes a dkms kernel interface module that allows a driver to
work with multiple kernel versions, and variants for fbdev, x11 and
wayland usage on Mali-4xx, -Txxx and -Gxx hardware are included.

Opengl (eg1, gles1&2), and opencl are supported.

A recent change in the Mali proprietary licence has made these drivers
redistributable, without a clickthrough, specifically so that
distributions can make them available.

Linaro is providing time for getting the packaging done.
