Noting that Haswell has been out for three years
and FreeBSD is just now getting alpha support
for its on die graphics (cool :)... what are the prospects
for SkyLake, whether 2d / 3d, and in what possible
timeframes?
How far do the recent imports / porting from Linux
and any new native FreeBSD code that were used
to support Haswell translate towards SkyLake?
What is Linux's current status on SkyLake?
How are SkyLake's supposed firmware blobs
expected to be handled within FreeBSD?
Is Intel's documentation sufficient?
Is the FreeBSD Foundation or any other entity in
a position or mind to assist with supporting what
seems like may be a potentially popular workstation
type of graphics hardware?

Any other relavant questions to ask / answer?
