Embedded Linux Conference 2013 - The Embedded Linux Problem
The Linux Foundation Embedded Linux Conference 2013 The Embedded Linux Problem By Mark Gross San Francisco, California Intel's reference BSP / Android stack for its last 3 generations of SOC has been experiencing the challenges of the "embedded problem" where we get a hardened kernel / OS stack hardened on time scales larger than the Linux release cycle. This results in harder efforts WRT upstreaming drivers and a failure to enable any community participation for SOC specific driver work. This talk will introduce the scope of the effort WRT the intel SOC's and explain how we've fell into the problem. Then we will go into how we are trying to address the problem more effectively.
