    This update for drm provides the following fixes:

    This security issue was fixed:

    - CVE-2017-10810: Memory leak in the virtio_gpu_object_create function in
    drivers/gpu/drm/virtio/virtgpu_object.c allowed attackers to cause a
    denial of service (memory consumption) by triggering
    object-initialization failures (bnc#1047277)

    These non-security issues were fixed:

    - Backport upstream 4.9.x stable fixes up to 4.9.81 (bsc#1041744).
    - Fixed crash at suspend/resume on old Intel chipsets (bsc#1047729,
    - Fixed large topology support for vmwgfx (bsc#1048155)
    - Workaround for BXT aperture vs GTT chip bug (bsc#1046821)
    - Limit the supplements for the default hardware support to only Intel
    Skylake / Kabylake and AMDGPU (bsc#1077885) 4.9.x i915 seems more buggy
    than expected for old chipsets.
    - Conditionally build aarch64 as well (bsc#1066175)
    - Build host1x module (taken from the kernel-source) as well for avoiding
    the unneeded dependency on kernel-default-extra on ARM64 (bsc#1066175)
    - Enable AMDGPU CIK and SI (bsc#1066175):
    - Add missing hisilicon hibmc driver (bsc#1066175):
    - Add si_support and cik_support options to radeon and amdgpu
    - Update Module.supported and apply it properly; following SLE12-SP3
    kernel status
    - Backport the upstream DP-MST fixes, addressing a hang at S3 resume
