ARM Status

Fixes for Calxeda’s NIC and Omap4 mmc landed in S/master-next, and patches
to handle the DTB concatenation and the generic-lpae kernel flavour were
submitted to the flash-kernel mantainer.
In the mean time, while testing the Calxeda kernel a new panic crop up and
investigation is ongoingi (no LP bug was filled yet since we are still ruling out
the hardware).

Latest bits for Calxeda Midway and LPAE support were pulled in S/master-next.
Work continues on making the S/master generic kernel use a concatenated
DTB: S/master-next tip has all the necessary config changes, while flash-kernel
still needs some work.

the archive freeze has lifted.

We’ll continue tracking the v3.11 kernel for the remainder of the Saucy
13.10 release.

The 12.04.3 point release is set to release this Thurs, Aug 22. I am
hearing rumors there may be a small slip, ie 1 day slip, but it should
be going out this week. We are not aware of any critical issues at this
time that would warrant any respins.

Lastly, Virtual UDS is next week, Tues-Thurs Aug 27-29. I’ve gone ahead
and opened a generic kernel catch-all blueprint. Feel free to add any
topics which you would like to discuss.

Status: Saucy Development Kernel

We have decided to target the v3.11 kernel for Saucy. As such, we have
uploaded a new Saucy kerel based on the v3.11-rc5 upstream kernel.
We’ll continue following the -rc and final releases for v3.11 and plan
to pick up the extended upstream stable maintenance for the duration of Saucy’s support cycle.

Additionally, I want to point out that the 12.04.3 point release is

critical of bug fixes would warrant a respin at this time.

Lastly, I wanted to add a reminder that Virtual UDS is 2 weeks away, Aug
27-29. If there are important topics neeing discussed be sure to file a
blueprint and get a session scheduled. I’ll likely only plan on holding
a single generic kernel catch-all session.

Status: Saucy Development Kernel

We have recently uploaded a new 3.10.0-5.14 Saucy kernel to the archive.
This includes the v3.10.2 upstream stable patch set, as well as a fix
for a regression which was causing graphics failures on boot. We have
also rebased our unstable branch to begin tracking v3.11-rc2.
I also want to again point out that the 12.04.3 point release is
approaching on Thurs Aug 22. Any kernel patches needing to land in the
12.04.3 point release need to be applied to our Raring kernel tree on
or before Mon July 29 in order to hit the SRU cadence before the point
release. Please get any patches submitted to the mailing list for
proper review as soon as possible.

kamal: Folks playing with 3.11-rc2 should be aware that acpi backlight is borked for many systems. A revert of the offending commits is planned in advance of 3.11-rc3.
The next two meetings will be canceled due to the kernel team sprint. The next meeting will be August 13th, 2013.
