VLAND is a project to enable dynamic network configuration of various switches. A communication protocol to interact with the daemon will be integrated into Linaro’s Automated Validation Architecture so that jobs can dynamically configure the network for testing. In this session, we will review the current state of the project, next steps, and open it up for a discussion.
VIXL is dynamic code generation toolkit for ARMv8 that we hope will enable JIT creators to rapidly target the ARM instruction set.
some of the pitfalls and time-sinks involved in creating a good JIT compiler backend. This led us to develop some tools to help improve our productivity. With ARM announcing the new Cortex-A range of processors supporting the AArch64 execution state we decided that we would focus our efforts on A64 tooling to enable developers to rapidly port programming language virtual machines for this new processor range. Soon after we decided to support Aarch32 as well.
This presentation will introduce you to what VIXL is, what’s new in VIXL and how to use it and take advantage of all its components that cover all the aspects of software development on ARM CPUs.
This is an inside look of the state of compliance from the perspective of the Software Freedom Conservancy, a nonprofit charitable organization that is the most active in the field. Karen will give an overview of where things are with compliance initiatives and insight into the ideological movement behind copyleft.
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.
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.
Reporting and visualization of test results are the most critical piece of a continuous integration system. QA Reports is a prototype web front end to help developers wade through the massive amounts of test results in a sane manner. This session will provide a brief overview of the application, and then it will be an open discussion on how to improve this solution.
