AMDVLK v-2019.Q2.5 Release + New Repo

As is the case every couple of weeks, I have built the latest version of amdvlk and lib32-amdvlk for Manjaro.

New feature and improvement

Update SDK headers to 1.1.109
Enable Scratch Bounds Checking for GFX9
VK_MEMORY_OVERALLOCATION_BEHAVIOR_ALLOWED_AMD: add support for the attachment image Vulkan memory type
Optimizations for acquire-release barrier

Issue fix

F1 2018 hang on gfx9
Some acquire-release barrier issues
World War Z - black patches corruption

I've also now include the WSA library. It is only supported by wayland and is meant to allow the driver to better interact with the window system. The driver will dynamically load the WSA library. If you are like me and don't use wayland there is nothing to do or worry about, it just will not be used. I decided to add it as i know there a lot of KDE users out there and they may see some improvements.
More info can be found here: https://github.com/GPUOpen-Drivers/wsa

Also i've made a very small repo hosting the very latest amdvlk for those wanting updates with minimal fuss. Server is located in Singapore. You will need to edit your /etc/pacman.conf and add the following:

[yorper]
SigLevel = Optional TrustAll
Server = https://majinbuu.com/manjaro/

The packages are called 'amdvlk+' and 'lib32-amdvlk+' to not conflict with the outdated packages provided by Manjaro.

As always though there is also the listing on github.

AMDs original release.

Enjoy :smile:
