As is clear from Jonathan's commit message, this work was sponsored by the OpenBSD Foundation - it shows how your financial support of the foundation can directly improve (in this case) hardware support. Many thanks to Jonathan for working on this.

It would be great if you might take the Time for a small Interview where he might explains the Problems, Beneftis or other Circumstances.
Just pointing to a CVS-Commit seams not worth an Article on Undeadly. :(
It also would be kind if the OpenBSD-Foundation might sponsor more Projects. OpenBSD needs better WiFi-Stack (best thing we got is 54g, no WPA3..), Hammer2-FS (or FFS2 Enhancements) would be desireable, Bluetooth/NFC would be nice or if you say "It is mainly used as firewall" -> Better SMP and FW to improve this..
Serval things would be importent too since OpenBSD does not support OpenCL the usage of "modern GPUs" is pretty limited.
And no: I can not programm any of the Requested things but maybe the Foundation can support Students (Google Summer of Code) or hire 1-2 Programmers for a year to implement such things?

If you truly want these things to happen and can't do them yourself, take action by what you can do: donate (more) to the OpenBSD Foundation.

I’m pretty sure they are aware of these already.
Are you contributing money, writing questions and offering to do the interview, or contributing in any way to facilitate any of your requests?
Your response to a post about tons of work and money being spent on something that helps tons of people, for a free project is to complain that it’s not enough.
Get some perspective.

I tested this with a Radeon RX 5600 XT (navi10), KMS works in the openbsd snapshot, but alas, Xenocara isn't up to speed yet since it complains about having to be compiled with llvm9.
Still, great work!
