Lima, the reverse engineered driver for Utgard-Malis, got revived recently (https://github.com/yuq?tab=repositories). Adventurous as I am I gave the kernel part a try on some Rockchip boards and after some fixes both the rk3036 and rk3188 can now find their gpus and the driver probes sucessfully.

Right now I'm building the userspace parts to see how far this has actually progressed :-) . Sadly I'll only be able to try that on the somewhat slow rk3036, as the rk3188 still lacks support for its display controllers.

The KernelCI.org project is doing a massive effort of testing the Linux kernel on a large number of hardware platforms, and +Free Electrons has been contributing to this project since April 2016.

However, KernelCI's testing is limited to boot testing: it verifies the system reaches a shell prompt. +Free Electrons wanted to do more advanced tests, sometimes specific to a given hardware platform.

Our intern Florent Jacquet has been working on this topic for a few months, and we now have an infrastructure in place to run custom tests. See our blog post at http://free-electrons.com/blog/beyond-boot-testing-custom-tests-lava/ for all the details.

Obviously, everything is open source!

kernelci is starting to come back on line... seems there's a bit of a backlog of work to catch up with.

Audio workshop accepted for Linux Plumbers Conference and Kernel Summit

Audio is an increasingly important component of the Linux plumbing, given increased use of Linux for media workloads and of the Linux kernel for smartphones. Topics include low-latency audio, use of the clock API, propagating digital configuration through dynamic audio power management (DAPM) [1], integration of HDA and ASoC, SoundWire ALSA use-case managemer (UCM) scalability, standardizing HDMI [2] and DisplayPort [3] interfaces, Media Controller API integration, and a number of topics relating to the multiple userspace users of Linux-kernel audio, including Android and ChromeOS as well as the various desktop-oriented Linux distributions.

As with many Linux-kernel components, upstreaming of vendor drivers and handling of stable and long term-stable (LTS) trees are also important topics.

Please join us for a timely and important discussion [4]!

LPC [5] will be held November 1-4 in Santa Fe, New Mexico, US, co-located with the Kernel Summit.

Looks like I'll be presenting at ELC-E this year!
