  ubuntu-drivers-common (1: trusty-proposed; urgency=medium

  * Backport from yakkety version 1:0.4.22: gpu-manager.c, gpu-manager.py:
    - Add all the necessary changes for nvidia and hybrid graphics to
      handle the new kernel modules and the EGL alternatives (LP: #1642662).
      Also detect the new amdgpu driver.
    - Leave gdm support disabled, since gdm is still missing a patch.

  ubuntu-drivers-common (1: trusty; urgency=medium

  * Backport from utopic version 1: debian/tests/system,
    tests/ubuntu_drivers.py, UbuntuDrivers/detect.py:
    - Revert the previous changes that made us switch from bcmwl to
      the open driver, as the latter (in order to be a full replacement)
      seems to require firmware that we cannot include in the Ubuntu
      image because of licensing issues (LP: #1481018).

  ubuntu-drivers-common (1: trusty-proposed; urgency=medium

  * gpu-manager.c, gpu-manager.py:
    - Use the amdconfig tool to configure multi-amd PXpress. This
      fixes a problem where the AMD control panel won't show an
      option to switch between power saving mode and performance
      mode on AMD+AMD hybrid systems (LP: #1410801).
    - The tests now reflect a more relaxed approach so that we
      do not overwrite configurations that are not supported (such
      as multiple xscreens set in the xorg.conf).
