ARM Status

TOPIC: ARM Status (ppisati)
Generic kernel arm: nothing interesting, besides lp709245 (“ARM SMP scheduler performance bug”) that is becoming a show stopper.
Oneiric/ti-omap4: a new BSP/kernel update (1202.6) is in the pipe.
Oneiric/tegra: nothing new to report.

Status: General Oneiric

TOPIC: Status: General Oneiric (ogasawara)
Some important dates to keep in mind are as follows:

  • Aug 25 – Beta Freeze (~1 week)
  • Sept 1 – Beta 1 (~2 weeks)
  • Sept 15 – Kernel Freeze (~4 weeks)
  • Sept 22 – Beta 2 (~5 weeks)
    We’ll continue pull in bug fixes and follow upstream stable v3.0.x as we move towards release. I’d also like to note that I’ve opened the P-series git repo and recently rebased it to v3.1-rc2. It’s available in my personal repo on zinc – git://kernel.ubuntu.com/ogasawara/ubuntu-p.git . I’ll make an official announcement to the mailing list shortly.

Status: Stable Kernel Team

TOPIC: Status: Stable Kernel Team (sconklin)

== Status of kernels ==   
  
This is kernel verification week. All kernels except Natty were ready for verification this   
week, but a regression has been discovered in all kernels except Natty due to application of   
a CVE patch. All kernels will be respun and further status will be announced when we have   
estimated completion times for kernel prep.   
  
The CVE tracking bug for the discovered regressionis here:   
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/813026/   
  
Kernel status for each series is as follows:   
  
=== Hardy ===   
* [[https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/8239120|Hardy Tracking Bug]]   
* Is being held for a CVE regression (was ready for copying to -updates)   
  
=== Lucid ===   
* [[https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/824148|Lucid Tracking Bug]]   
* Is being held for a CVE regression (was in verification)   
  
=== Maverick ===   
* [[https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/823306|Maverick Tracking Bug]]   
* Is being held for a CVE regression (was in verification)   
  
=== Natty ===   
* [[https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/818175|Natty Tracking Bug]]   
* Is being held for an [[https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/814325|Intel graphics regression ]]   
This regression also exists in upstream kernels, and the hardware enablement team is   
invesitgating this and working with upstream.
