Status: Trusty Development Kernel

We’ve finished cleaning up some DKMS packages for Trusty and are
preparing for our first v3.13 based kernel upload to the archive.
This is specifically based on the latest v3.13-rc7 upstream kernel.
I would also like to remind everyone that the 12.04.4 point release is
now taking place on Thurs Feb 6. The kernel is currently frozen for
12.04.4 and we do not anticipate any respins at this time.

Status: Trusty Development Kernel

The master branch for Trusty remains rebased on the v3.12.4 upstream
stable kernel. Our unstable branch has most recently rebased to
v3.13-rc4. Again, we don’t anticipate a v3.13 based upload for Trusty
until after the new year.
I would also like to point out that the 12.04.4 point release was pushed
out by 2 weeks from Jan 23 to Feb 6. This will not have any impact on
the kernel, we will still plan on shipping with the kernel we currently
have going through -proposed.

wider consumtion, ie uploaded to the archive.

Milestone Targeted Work Items

While marginally useful for tracking work items in the past, the above
links are completely useless at the moment. I have manually reviewed
work items from the core-1311-kernel and core-1311-hwe-plans blueprints.
However, beyond those two, I’m oblivious to what other work our team or
individuals were signed up for.

Status: Trusty Development Kernel

For those unaware, the ubuntu-trusty git repo is open and available at:
git://kernel.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ubuntu-trusty.git . The master branch is
currently tracking the latest 3.12.1 upstream stable kernel while the
unstable branch has most recently been rebased to v3.13-rc1. We shall
move our master branch to track v3.13 after some baking. We will also
upload to the archive when it’s ready.

Status: Saucy Development Kernel

We are ~2 days away from Final Freeze. We do however expect additional
kernel uploads hopefully by EOD today for both phablet and distro
kernels. These uploads will primarily provide some critical bug fixes
for AppArmor. Additionally, for the distro kernel we may take advantage
of this upload opportunity to land some patches we were queuing for SRU.
All the patches in question are documented at each of the following bug
reports: LP:1208988, LP:1218004, LP:1235523, LP:1235973, LP:1235977,
LP:1235161, LP:1235914. Beyond this, we do not anticipate any further
uploads until the first round of kernel SRU’s following 13.10′s release.
Also having passed Kernel Freeze last week, I’ll plan on sending out the
obligatory emails regarding Saucy’s final kernel version and configuration.

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).

ARM Status

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.

Status: Saucy Development Kernel

v3.11 final has been released upstream and we have rebased our Saucy
tree. The archive is however frozen for the Beta-1 release this Thurs.
As such, Beta-1 will ship with a v3.11-rc7 based kernel. We will upload
our v3.11 rebased to -proposed and it will propogate to the release once
the archive freeze has lifted.

Status: Saucy Development Kernel

We have uploaded a new Saucy kerel based on the v3.11-rc6 upstream kernel.
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
approaching on Thurs Aug 22, ie ~1 week from now. Only the most
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.
