ARM Status

Kernel development: usual CVE fixes across different branches.
Oneiric/ti-omap4: we reached an agreement with agreen/linaro to get the TI BSP on top of a vanilla kernel, as a result a new oneiric/master-next-based kernel is in the work – see git://kernel.ubuntu.com/ppisati/ubuntu-oneiric.git ti-omap4-next. Still a WIP, kernel panics on boot ATM, do not use.

BluePrint: other-kernel-o-ubuntu-delta-review

The remaining work items here are all tasks to review and upstream patches; apw, lag, manjo, rsalveti, and tgardner please review your item and push it out to oneiric-alpha-3 if you are not going to complete it this week.

BluePrint: other-kernel-o-version-and-flavours

Nothing outstanding for oneiric-alpha-2.

BluePrint: other-kernel-o-server-requirements

  • Xen items done
  • seccomp in progress

Status: Development Kernel Team

Overall we are progressing well, the kernel is stabalising nicely and regressions and bugs seem tractable at this time. We have a number of outstanding tasks for oneiric-alpha-2 which likely will slip further, most are upstreaming tasks and as such not release critical.

Development kernels – Oneiric

The oneiric kernel is currently at 3.0-3.4 which is based on 3.0-rc5 from mainline. As well as the mainline kernel update this kernel also dropped the ARM versatile flavour which is deprecated.

We are in milestone freeze for oneiric-alpha-2 which releases this upcoming thursday. We expect to upload an upstream 3.0-rc6 kernel as soon as the freeze lifts.

Status: Stable Kernel Team

The commits responsible for the known regressions in Lucid and Natty were identified, their kernel packages are not being held anymore. Everything is progressing in the SRU workflow process.

Status now is:

  • Hardy: kernel in -proposed is in verification. One bug remaining to be verified.
  • Lucid: Currently in verification. In the end of verification phase it should progress to qa/regression testing and for security-signoff.
  • Maverick: Currently in verification. No regressions so far. Two bugs remaining to be verified.
  • Natty: Passed verification, security-signoff done. Waiting for regression-testing to start, and going through certification testing.
  • Current SRU status is here:
