The OpenDataPlane project is now two years old and is beginning to see widespread interest on the part of both application writers and platform providers. This talk will discuss recent developments in ODP and its uses and look at what lies ahead for this fast-growing open source project.
UEFI boot testing with SCT and luvOS automation have stretched the original design scope for LAVA, the session will describe the challenges and needs for ARM server boot test automation going forward in cooperation with the LAVA and CI teams.
Abstract: Experiences productizing the gateway (from hobby to product) and the challenges for IoT deployment scenarios: Home security, Home automation, Home healthcare, and Enterprise IoT (smart manufacturing).
Linaro has been refining the secure storage solution in OP-TEE and in this session the audience will get an update about the current status and also will get to know about the implementation details, design decisions and what algorithms that has been used.
The Kernel Consolidation 2.0 lead project aims to identify and work on reducing areas where vendors need to ship out of tree modifications and additions to kernel frameworks in order to deliver key functionality. In this session we will discuss how we are going to organize and coordinate this work in conjunction with other efforts in the community.
Linaro is using OpenEmbedded as part of its engineering builds. We propose to discuss how Linaro is using OpenEmbedded for its use cases and how we can improve our contribution to YOCTO project. The goal of the discussion is to identify areas in which Linaro can help.
ARM FDPIC toolset and kernel patches makes it possible to boot a mmu-less Linux kernel and support userland applications which rely on dynamic loading. No source change are needed to compiler the application (compared to the BFLAT model). The presentation will focus on the toolset structure and characteristics and give some insights on the FDPIC ABI.
In this session, Tim Bird will discuss the mainline status of several ARM SoCs used in mobile products. The average phone uses kernel software that is 3 years old, 20 versions behind mainline, and has 1 to 3 million lines of code out-of-tree. Tim will describe the “Device Mainlining” project of the Linux Foundation CE Workgroup, which seeks to address this problem. Some of the activities of this project are:
* publishing tools for mainline analysis
* finding big areas where multiple vendors have code out of tree
* identifying institutional barriers to corporate developer mainlining, and addressing them through education, training, and collaboration
* working with upstream to address deficient sub-systems or needed maintainer assistance
It is hoped that discussion will ensue about ways to continue enhancing this work, to get more SoC code mainlined.
