Submission + - ARM hates the Lima driver. (

An anonymous reader writes: ARM management seriously dislikes the project to provide an open source driver for ARMs Mali GPU. ARM management sees no advantage in an open source driver for their Mali, and they think that the Lima driver reveals too much of the internals of the Mali hardware. ARM management believes that if they actually wanted an open source driver, they could simply open source their own code. The main developer of Lima naturally doesn't buy into ARMs views or reasoning, and states that Lima will continue and that ARM cannot do anything to stop it.
