The Linux kernel has over 26 years of development, and in that time a rather large number of licenses as well as license header variants have accumulated in it. Scanners can only guess at what’s meant, and usually a significant amount of manual verification work is needed to “clear” the kernel by companies before they can use it in a product. Last year, the kernel community agreed on using the SPDX ids as a way of moving us towards being able to understand the licensing of the kernel with a “grep”. A brief overview of the state of the kernel licensing cleanup will be presented, as well as tooling available to help. Discussing the kernel subsystems that Linaro is active in, and any problems with applying the SPDX ids in files, will be the focus of the remainder of the session.

LVC20-201 Boot-Time Tracing With Extra Boot ConfigFriday, October 16, 2020
Boot-time tracing is one of the latest Linux kernel tracing proposal, which allows us to trace kernel booting with full tracing features, like per-event filters and triggers, histograms, instances, dynamic-events etc. Along with the boot-time tracing the kernel command-line interface is also expanded by Extra Boot Config (XBC) so that user can specify complex boot-time settings with structured-key value configuration file.
This talk will show you what the boot-time tracing and the extra boot config provide, the advantages and how you can use it for your boot-time features.
LVC20-317 Analysis of ARM64's Competence for Oil&Gas Seismic Data Processing ApplicationsWednesday, September 30, 2020
Each seismic survey in Oil & Gas exploration generates tons of seismic wave data, typically hundreds of Terabytes. Transforming the huge amount of data into a accurate earth subsurface model requires exascale level computing power. This presentation will analyze the computing requirements and trends in seismic data processing, evaluate the competence of the current generations ARM64 SoCs and the new features required.
LVC20-117 Everything you want to know about live migration on Arm64 CloudWednesday, September 30, 2020
Slack channel to chat with the speaker during the live broadcast: https://linaroconnect.slack.com/archives/C01B1SV18F5
Currently, one big gap between Arm64 and X86 cloud platforms is that X86 can provide a much better instance migration experience than the Arm64 platform. CPU comparison and CPU model capabilities have provided Arm64 VM with the ability to live migration among different hardware vendors. This function is the essential function of the data center. From the cloud management framework, we also need to consider the realization of supporting VM live migration.
In this session, we will talk about what we have done in the most widely used virtualization management tool - Libvirt to provide better live migration capabilities on Arm64 platform and also some details in the newest lightweight cloud management project such as Kubevirt.
With live migration support on Arm64, it can finally benefit the cloud ecosystem for large scale datacenter scenarios which may use different Arm64 CPU architectures and vendors.
