radv: Experimental Vulkan Driver Now Runs Dota2

David Airlie and Bas Nieuwenhuizen have made → huge progress with radv last month. Their experimental, unofficial Vulkan driver for Volcanic Islands GPUs is now able to run Dota2 without issues. I don't have performance figures but it is quite amazing to see that it's able to run real world applications.

They started about a month ago by forking Intel's Vulkan driver, IIRC. AMD still struggles with some IP-related problems which still delay the promised release of their Open Source Vulkan driver. Good to see an alternatve solution heading our way!
