Maintaining a Large Kernel Subsystem - Arnd Bergmann

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

The arm-soc tree has over the past four years been the way for many thousand patches to get merged into the Linux kernel. What started out as a an attempt to bring relative order into the chaos of SoC specific ARM kernel patches has grown into a central infrastructure for ARM developers. In this presentation, Arnd will give an inside view of how the arm-soc team operates in co-maintaining a git-tree, working with a diverse set of downstream developers and hardware, and how he hopes to obviate this job in the long run.

Arnd Bergmann

Arnd Bergmann works for Linaro as one of the maintainers of the arm-soc tree, through which the platform specific code for ARM based SoCs are merged. As a long-time kernel contributor, he has worked on many CPU architectures and subsystems before that, and his current side interests include fixing the 2038 time_t overflow and removing outdated interfaces in the kernel.
