Now is the time for 64-bit #ARM
vendors to GET YOUR CODE UPSTREAM
. If you'd like to see support land in certain vendor trees, be prepared for a rude awakening if you are not doing it right. Right now. I'm talking to you. Yes, you. Don't think we won't call you on it, because we will call you on it. Someone needs to stand up and make sure everyone understands there will be no zoo. There will only be standards
You see, the beautiful thing is, I don't have to give a flying expletive what other Linux or non-Linux vendors you're working with, or what they will do to bend over or play dead. If you want it done right by the big boys, you're going to get it upstream. Now. Or no pony for you. And by the end of this year that had better
mean I can just download Fedora and see support stock from an upstream kernel targeting all of those things you'd like to see in non-Fedora situations. Because we're not playing the other game.
And it'll help everyone if someone takes a strong stance here. I've been beating up so many vendors for the past few months that a nice little wave of submissions is about to land. That's great. There needs to be more. Because this is going to be just like that other architecture when I am done here. You're going to just get a 64-bit ARM kernel from upstream and it is just going to boot on whatever system you have lying around, and vendors are going to just be able to productize that if they choose to do so. NO ZOO.
