20120207 Meeting Agenda

ARM Status

UUID support: Found a way to support an initrd-less kernel using GPT, an hybrid mbr and the ROOTUUID boot parameter, kernel seems to be good already.
lp709245 (“ARM SMP scheduler performance bug”): Still bisecting latest P kernel trying to find where the fix for this issue has been embedded in the TI BSP – whenever i turn on the the corresponding upstream errata (PL310_ERRATA_769419) the kernel hangs on boot, so there must be a previous patch clashing in there. Now i’m down to a ~160 commits window.
P/omap4: Nothing new to report this week.

Status: Precise Development Kernel

Last week we rebased to v3.2.4 and uploaded. We’ve recently rebased to v3.2.5 and plan to upload shortly. Note that Beta-1 is on the horizon with Beta Freeze approximately 2 weeks away. We’ll be prepping our Beta-1 kernel next week. If there are any patches which need to land, submit them now.
I’d like to also note that we’ve opened the Q git repo for anyone interested (git:// At this time, it is strictly for development/testing purposes only and will not be supported until Q officially opens in the archive.
Important upcoming dates:

Overall we have pushed the backlog down by approximatly 2 CVEs this week:

We have also pushed another CVE back to security for review. This backlog
is increasing.
