Motivation for this change

drm-next is a Linux kernel branch that contains the newest changes for graphics drivers and would be especially useful for people with newer graphics cards and want the most up to date drivers.

Things done
  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS linux)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nix-review --run "nix-review wip"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)
  • Ensured that relevant documentation is up to date
  • Fits CONTRIBUTING.md.

I am not a fan of having many testing kernels in nixpkgs. When testing new out-of-tree kernel modules with nix-review, I constantly get breakages from linux-testing.nix, linux-libre.nix. I honestly don't want to have yet another kernel target that breaks...

I was thinking manually however having some automated way would be a good idea, I was just planning to follow new tags @ https://cgit.freedesktop.org/drm/drm/

I'm not too familiar with nix-review, I just think this might be a useful kernel for people, maybe if there's somewhere else to put it that's outside of nixpkgs that wouldn't be too hard to find/too obscure.

hmmm, to be honest, I am with @Mic92 here.
Could you just keep this derivation local? Following linux-next would be quite the maintenance investment.

I created https://github.com/nix-community/NUR at some point for people to share their packages. Discoverability could be improved, but I have not yet managed to automate updating the search index. However you could maybe put a link on the wiki for people to find it.

Seeing as people don't seem to be too interested, I'll look into moving it onto the NUR or just keeping it locally.

Does anyone have any good suggestions on some good ways of keeping this derivation locally?
