ARM Status

Q/omap4: Ubuntu-3.4.0-201.3 is out, with hdmi and jack audio support. Some of the new features (like video and audio offloading to gpu/dsp) will have to wait until 3.5rcX hits master, since we need CMA and dma-map support (already present in linus vanilla).
only fools rush in

kamal, go ahead
An old colleague of mine, Dave Taht, is a member of the http://www.bufferbloat.net/ group. Some of their work will be landing in the 3.5 kernel (codel and fq_codel – a new active TCP queue management algo).
Dave would like to be in contact with someone on the Ubuntu kernel team to talk about configuration and usage issues for that stuff. Shall I direct him to anyone in particular? Is there a networking point-person?
kamal, i’d say just get him to send email to kernel-team@
kamal, he can start with me or apw
kernel-team@ works as well
ok, two names + the kernel-team@ list :-) that’ll do :-) thanks.
