20110531 Meeting Agenda

ARM Status

Kernel news/SRU: nothing exciting – a small fix to support beagle xm rev c, some work for lxc support in omap4, while a boatload of CVEs fix for imx51/mvl-dove/ti-omap4 is approaching.

About the O cycle: TI told us they are going to spend a lot of resources/efforts to make 2.6.39 tightly/well integrated with their BSP AKA we get 2.6.39 in oneiric/ti-omap4. No ETA yet, but same path as before TI -> Linaro LT -) Ubuntu.

Unsupported news: davidm is pushing Toshiba ac100 (tegra2) around, and ogra has packaged a kernel for it – guess we are going to experimentally support tegra in the not-so-distant future.

Blueprints: Oneiric Delta Review

apw, jjohansen, lag, manjo, mpoirier, ralveti, rtg: you have Alpha-1 work items to review your set of Ubuntu patches. Please take a moment to review or postpone till Alpha-2. See for your specific set of patches.

Blueprints: Oneiric Server Requirements

  • None of those started so far
  • Though 3.0 has the last part for Xen

Status: General Oneiric

Over the weekend we uploaded the 2.6.39-3.10 kernel which is based on upstream v2.6.39 final. I intend to keep us on v2.6.39 final for our Alpha-1 release on Thurs June 2. Even bigger news for those who haven’t heard is that Linus released v3.0-rc1! This does introduce a bit of an issue for our scripts, but we’re actively working to deal with the fallout and get our versioning in shape. This also means we’ll target Oneiric to release with a v3.0 kernel rather than v2.6.40.

Status: Stable Kernel Team

We are beginning preparation for another kernel release cycle, but were delayed by problems discovered when running generic kernels in xen dom0 in Lucid and Maverick, and by a potential USB 3.0 problem in Natty. Despite a request to not publish the known-bad Lucid amd Maverickkernels, Lucid kernels were published and are currently in the field. It was only discovered this morning that the kernels
had been published, due to the three day weekend in the U.S. and it appears to have been due to miscommunication.

The next update for Lucid kernels should fix this problem, but these kernels (which had been prepared) must now be respun because the one in proposed was released. The previous kernel cycle is still incomplete due to problems verifying whether an issue seen on Natty USB3.0 really exists.

Today the stable kernel team will remove all three USB 3.0 patches which were applied during the last cycle to Natty, and begin th enext cycle. If we can get a response from the original reporter of the issue, we will attempt to determine which change caused his problem, if any.

On a more positive note, Support for Dapper expires tomorrow.
