20110607 Meeting Agenda

ARM Status

Kernel news/SRU: mainly CVEs for imx51 and omap4, a small config change to avoid a kernel panic on imx51, and another config change to get lxc on omap4. New 4.6 cross toolchain: lp791552 (“No USB support on beagle/beagleXM”) seems it has uncovered a problem with the new 4.6 toolchain, reproduced the issue with a linaro kernel and forwarded to linaro mailing list.

Blueprints: Oneiric Delta Review

apw, jjohansen, lag, manjo, ralveti, rtg: you have work items to review your set of Ubuntu patches which I’ve postponed to Alpha-2 for you. Please take a moment to review when you have a chance. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelTeam/Specs/KernelOneiricUbuntuDeltaReview for your specific set of patches.

Blueprints: Oneiric Server Requirements

Nothing new.

Status: General Oneiric

We’ve almost resolved all the issues from the v3.0 fallout. We’re just wrestling with module-init-tools to get depmod sorted out. We’ve rebased to v3.0-rc2 and pushed to master-next. With v3.0-rc2, there’s an issue on boot (black screen of death) when the i915 driver is loaded. This can be worked around using i915.modeset=0 at the moment. There’s also reported boot issues on some system’s with atom processors on at least v3.0-rc1. So, I’m a bit hesitant to upload at the moment knowing we’ll break some common hardware use cases.

Module init tools are very very nearly there, last reviews going on now.

Status: Stable Kernel Team

  • Hardy – no bugs needing verification, moving right into QA.
  • Lucid and Maverick – Dealing with USB regressions. New kernels are being packaged and will be uploaded today.
  • Natty – A possible regression was reported, herton is investigating.

Open Discussion or Questions: Raise your hand to be recognized

  • First item is what to do with the Oneiric Bug Handling blueprint

    • The majority of remaining work items center around our bug tooling and are not release critical. IMO we don’t really want/need this to be on the agenda each week. Thoughts?
    • We are going to be doing what we can using tooling and the rest add hock
    • I’ll look over the blueprint and see where i can help out
