Two Years of ARM SoC Support mainlining: Lessons Learned - Thomas Petazzoni, Free Electrons

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

Throughout the last two years, a team of engineers at Free Electrons has been involved in mainlining the support for several ARM processors from Marvell, converting the not-so-great vendor-specific BSP into mainline quality code progressively merged upstream. This effort of several hundreds working days, has led to the integration of hundreds of patches in the kernel. Through this talk we would like to share some lessons learned regarding this mainlining effort, which could be useful to other engineers involved in ARM SoC support, as well as detail the steps we have gone through, the mistakes we've made and how we solved them, and generally our experience on this project.
