Blueprint: hardware-p-kernel-power-management

Power Management:

  • Write up results from wake events analysis and file lots of bugs
  • Write cpustat: git://
    Test CPU utilization, results:
  • Investigate MSR_IA32_ENERGY_PERF_BIAS on sandybridge, no +ve results
    need to rig up Ivybridge desktop to sanity check this.
  • LP#911325 – new pm-utils scripts to save power
  • Collect power measurements on Hardy, Lucid, Maverick, Natty, Oneiric, Precise

Status: Precise Development Kernel

Over the holiday break we rebased to v3.2-rc7 and uploaded. Aside from that not much else has been done.
Important Upcoming Dates:

  • Thurs Feb 2 – Alpha 2 (~4 weeks)

Status: Stable, Security, and Bugfix Kernel Updates – Oneiric/Natty/Maverick/Lucid/Hardy

Here is the status for the main kernels, until today (19/12):

  • Hardy – 2.6.24-30.98

    • New kernel, now in verification. Contains commits for 5 CVEs.

  • Lucid – 2.6.32-38.82

    • New kernel, waiting to be copied to -proposed. Contains a stable upstream
      release as well as some CVEs. This also turns CONFIG_NET_NS back on.

  • Maverick – 2.6.35-32.64

    • New kernel, waiting to be copied to -proposed. Contains a rare, stable
      upstream release as well as some CVEs.

  • Natty – 2.6.38-13.53

    • New kernel, now being built.

  • Oneiric – 3.0.0-15.25

    • New kernel, now in verification. A regression was identified in the
