Integrating the ION memory allocator

 In Android

At the 2013 Linux Plumbers conference we’ll be discussing the ION memory allocator and how its functionality might be upstreamed to the mainline kernel during the Android + Graphics micro-conference.  I wanted to create some background documentation to try to provide context to the issues we will discuss and try to resolve at the micro-conference so I wrote an article for LWN to give more detail.  You can read the full article here.
