    Same as for 3.0, this seems pointless without the dependent radeon
    changes:

    268ba0a drm/radeon: implement ACPI VFCT vbios fetch (v3)
    7c3906d drm/radeon: convert radeon vfct code to use acpi_get_table_with_size
    c61e277 drm/radeon: split ATRM support out from the ATPX handler (v3)

    (For 3.2 I also needed these fixes from 3.3:

    a3f83ab drm/radeon: fix invalid memory access in radeon_atrm_get_bios()
    211fa4f drm/radeon: finish getting bios earlier
    de47a9c drm/radeon: fix use after free in ATRM bios reading code.

    but I don't know whether those would be sufficient to backport this lot
    to 3.0.)

    Ben.
