BoFs: Kernel Wish List - John Stultz

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

For the last few years, its become a tradition for Linux desktop developers to present a Linux kernel wishlist, at the Linux Plumbers conference, which basically summarizes some of the features those developers see as needed.  See examples here:


See I hope to present a similar wish list this year at Plumbers, but instead focusing on the needs of Android/mobile use cases.

Thus this informal BoF will try to pull together a number of Android builders, OEMs, and component vendors to collect feature requests, and find pain points with getting device support working with the Linux kernel. What things are folks having trouble getting upstream? What infrastructure is missing to more easily support what you're doing? Are there new hardware classes that are being ignored upstream? So come with your issues and lets add them to the list!"
