ARM Status

Q/master: lp1176977 (“XFS instability on armhf under load”) – passed all xfs
tests (tested both on arm and x86), but there’s still one patch missing (and
waiting to enter linux-next for 3.11).
*/highbank: lp1182637(“cpu_offlining fails to run on ARM”) – indeed, it was a
firmware issue: updating the node to the last available firmware, made cpu
hotplugging work – lp1185669 (“CPU cores offline and can’t be brought back up on
ARM Server card”) is probably a dup.
R/master: lp1171582(“hvc0 getty causes random hangs”), seems like i can detect
the presence of a jtag console (DBGAUTHSTATUS NSNE bit) and thus attach or not
the xen console to it, i’ll give it a try.

Status: Saucy Development Kernel

Our Saucy unstable branch has been rebased to the latest v3.10-rc6
upstream kernel. We unfortunately have still not uploaded yet. We are
still awaiting fixups for a few DKMS packages. We hope to upload by EOW
or early next week. In the mean time we have gone ahead and rebased our
Saucy master branch to the recent v3.9.6 upstream stable kernel and
uploaded.
For our phablet kernels we have been investigating some kernel size
constraints and the modules which we have enabled and built in.

ARM Status

Q/master: lp1176977 (“XFS instability on armhf under load”) – turned out some
xfs tests failure that i was experiencing were already present in 3.5.y
vanilla for arm, so none of the backported patches were responsible for it.
On the other hand, there’s a new 100% reproducible hang while running
tests/generic/0368. Still working on it, collecting patches, pinging upstream,
etcetc.
*/highbank: lp1182637(“cpu_offlining fails to run on ARM”) – according to
robherr this is due to a different u-boot that we are using, waiting for an
update.
S/master: did some testing of 3.10-rcX for omap[34], imx6 and vexpress, so
far so good.

Status: Saucy Development Kernel

Our Saucy unstable branch has been rebased to the latest v3.10-rc5
upstream kernel. We are still holding off on a v3.10 based upload due
to missing AUFS support as well as some DKMS package failures we would
like to resolve. We have however gone ahead and rebased our Saucy master
branch to the recent v3.9.5 upstream stable and plan to upload that
today.
On the mobile front I’m hearing news that the container flip should
hopefully be happening this week.

    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

    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.

    ARM Status

    Q/master: lp1176977 (“XFS instability on armhf under load”) – cherry picked two
    more patches that address the free space fragmentation: the resulting kernel
    passes all tests so far, i’m waiting for user feedback and one last batch of
    tests.
    */highbank: lp1182637(“cpu_offlining fails to run on ARM”) – all the highbanks kernel that
    we released so far are affected by this – basically, you can offline a cpu but
    when you try to put it back, reinsetion fails and the only way to get the cpu back
    is to reboot. Debugged till the point the cpu is plugged back, but it never really
    starts and pick up the idle thread – i’ll probably need to do a comparison
    between the boot environment (when the cpu are added to the system via the same
    mechanism) and this scenario.

    Status: Saucy Development Kernel

    Our Saucy unstable branch has been rebased to the latest v3.10-rc3
    upstream kernel. Saucy master-next is currently at v3.9.3. I
    anticipate we’ll cut over to v3.10 around the -rc4 time frame.
    On the phablet side, we now have Ubuntu kernels in the archive for the
    Nexus 4, 7, 10, and Galaxy Nexus devices. We also anticipate an
    AppArmor pull request next week from the security team to get the latest
    AppArmor patches into these kernels.

    ARM Status

    Q/master: lp1176977 (“XFS instability on armhf under load”) – working with
    upstream on this one: i already backported a fix that turn the vmalloc() exhaustion
    and fs shutdown to an -ENOSPC error, and this second error seems to be triggered
    by the tiny fs used in these tests (~2GB). Still working to get it
    properly fixed.
    R/master: lp1171582(“[highbank] hvc0 getty causes random hangs”) -
    the jtag console has a 1-char producer-consumer buffer and if there’s no
    real hw attached to the board, any subsequent write turn into an endless loop
    waiting for a consumer. The situation is worsened by the fact
    that before writing to this register a tty spinlocked is taken, and
    any subsequent tentative to pick this spinlock makes the thread hang -
    got a confirmation of the problem, some info about the hw, and i’m working on this.

    The burn down charts have not yet been reset for 13.10, so disregard the
    second link posted abovefor now. I’ll be cleaning up and adding work
    items for 13.10 so that the +upcomingwork link will be more accurate.
    Next week I’ll have the usual nag table available.


    Status: Saucy Development Kernel

    For now, we’ll plan on targetting the v3.10 kernel for Saucy but will
    strongly re-evaluate a move to v3.11 in the coming months. We’ve just
    rebased Saucy to v3.10-rc2 and are still cleaning up some of the
    carnage. I don’t anticipate we’ll upload until a later -rc which will
    hopefully provide more stability.

    There was a question about what’s going on the arm side.
    The question was rather open ended, so further discussion was moved to #ubuntu-kernel.

    Status: Raring Development Kernel

    Highlights from this past week include rebasing Raring to the latest
    v3.8.5 upstream stable kernel, adding Highbank support, and renaming our

    ARM Status

    R/master: work continues on the arm multiplatform kernel – right now i’m
    tracking down a “BUG: scheduling while atomic” (actually an alignment problem -
    how conform
    http://paste.ubuntu.com/1613275/) that only happens on omap4, seems to be ipv6
    related and seems to be triggered by our articulated kernel configuration.

    Status: Stable, Security, and Bugfix Kernel Updates – Quantal/Precise/Oneiric/Lucid/Hardy

    We’re skipping a kernel SRU cadence to allow for an additional 3 weeks of testing for the kernel that will ship with the 12.04.2 point release.
    However, due to regressions, we currently have new Precise, Quantal and lts-Quantal kernels in Testing.
    Next week the regular SRU cycles will restart.

    Status: Raring Development Kernel

    We have rebased the Raring kernel to the latest v3.8-rc2 upstream
    kernel. We have held off on uploading until we have resolved some DKMS
    package build failures. Everyone should also review the
    ubuntu-raring/dropped.txt file to review anything that may have
    inadvertantly gone missing after the rebase.
    Important upcoming dates:

    • Raring:

      • Fri Jan 18 – 13.04 Month 3 Milestone (1 week)
      • Mon Feb 18 – 13.04 Month 4 Milestone (~6 weeks)

      • Thu Jan 10 – 12.04.2 Kernel Freeze (~2 days)
      • Thu Feb 14 – 12.04.2 Release (~5 weeks)
        We should have the last DKMS issues fixed tomorrow.
