Lo! Below patch adds the PCI-ID for the Intel(R) Iris Graphics 550 (Skylake
GT3e mobile) to libdrm. It afaics is the last piece that is missing to
make those GPUs work properly, as Linux 4.6-rc(¹) and Mesa 11.2 already
support it – but without this patch I get a "error initializing buffer
manager" message from i965 when it tries to load. I tested it on a
laptop with a Core i5-6267U and it seems to work -- but I only did a
few quick tests so far.

Could someone @Intel please comment if this patch should be enough to
make libdrm support this GPU properly? And while at it could you please
tell me proper code identifiers for the Iris Graphics 540 and 550? Then I 
can update the patch to use a better name (I assume the "SKYLAKE_GT3E" I   
used in my patch is misleading) and add support for the 540 (0x1923) as 
well.

tia, cu, knurd

Forget that patch -- a way better one was submitted weeks ago my Michal
already:
https://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/intel-gfx/2016-February/087819.html

Did that patch simply fall through the cracks or is there a reason why
it wasn't applied to libdrm master? It is pretty obvious it would fix
the problem I saw and tried to address with that rough patch I send
yesterday.

CU, knurd

P.S.: Added intel-gfx and michal.winiarski to CC

It looks like it fell through the cracks.  Roland just mentioned this on
IRC...I've reviewed and pushed the patch to master.  I'm also making a
release.

Many thx. Side note, while at it: I think this linux-drm patch from
Michał fell through the cracks, too:
https://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/intel-gfx/2016-February/087855.html

Whole story:  That libdrm patch you applied contained this line:

+#define PCI_CHIP_SKYLAKE_SRV_GT3 0x192D

This id for the Iris Graphics P555 is also present in Mesa master
i965(¹), but missing in Linux master afaics:
https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/tree/include/drm/i915_pciids.h#n279
And it's not in drm-intel-next either afaics:
https://cgit.freedesktop.org/drm-intel/tree/include/drm/i915_pciids.h?h=drm-intel-next#n279
