Collaboration with Linaro and Member companies on upstreaming key common kernel features beneficial to the Arm Ecosystem.

The sources of the features could include:

  • Common out of tree code from member deliverables
  • New or updated specifications from standards organizations such as USB, MMC, PCI, etc
  • Refactoring of common sub-systems to reduce duplication of board and architecture specific code
  • Champion new technologies to prevent fragmentation

Key Deliverables:

  • Tool to analyze kernel source code base version against shipped product source
  • Analysis of member product code bases for common issues
  • Regular prioritized list of areas to be improved upstream & successes
  • Consideration for LSK inclusion of code produced prior to completion of upstreaming
