ARM Status

Q/master: lp1176977 (“XFS instability on armhf under load”) – cherry picked
more fixes for the preallocation code, rerun the swift benchmark with different
fs sizes but unfortunately some xfs tests failed, under investigation.
*/highbank: lp1182637(“cpu_offlining fails to run on ARM”) – little progress on
this one, but i’m still working on it.
There was a question whether we had helped test the Nexus 7 kernel for phonedations.
They stated they didn’t have the hw
That was the only blocker from it landing in the touch images
Will sync with rtg upon his return then

Milestone Targeted Work Items

It appears not all the blueprints are setting the series properly and thus we may be missing some
work items for our team. I’ll review any oversights and update the table next week.

Status: Saucy Development Kernel

Our Saucy unstable branch has been rebased to the latest v3.10-rc4
upstream kernel. Saucy master-next is currently at v3.9.4. We are
debugging some boot issues with the v3.10-rc4 rebase, so will hold off
on uploading a v3.10 based kernel until those are resolved.
We still anticipate an AppArmor pull request this week from the security
team to get the latest AppArmor patches into our phablet kernels.
Important upcoming dates:
Thurs June 20 – Alpha 1 (opt in)
