In a way, yes. Our drm infrastructure and i915 driver are now more like their
Linux version than the FreeBSD one is.
I don't know what the FreeBSD developers are doing with drm/i915 but as far as
I know it has mostly been unchanged for a year.

FreeBSD itself contains some wrappers for common Linux APIs, which I have been
adding to DragonFly and started using in the drm code.
We also have local implementations of some different Linux APIs like idr(9)

Our drm/i915 driver already contains some Haswell and Valleyview code (newer
Atoms) but much more work is needed to make these GPUs usable.
