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.
Both the Field and more recently the LAVA lab have worked on HOWTOs to fill a need for a getting-up-and-running thread of documentation alongside the more mature reference information. Using material from both of these the session proposes to show how an evaluation installation of LAVA along with a qemu target can be assembled in a VM. The target audience is member engineers or managers who are aware of LAVA and would consider to evaluate a pilot local installation
Due to team size and dynamics, the LAVA dispatcher refactoring has been a slow and gradual push to replace the original device communication logic and we are starting to get closer to completion. Join us for a update and discussion on the current state of the effort, see how current use cases will migrate and how new use cases can be adopted.
An introductory session of a system-level overview at Power State Coordination
* Focus on ARMv8
* Goes top-down from ACPI
* A demo based on the current code in qemu (and/or 96Boards)
* The specifications are very dynamic - what’s onging for ACPI and PSCI
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.
