Engineering Review

LEG Engineering review slides

  • UEFI v8
    • Leendert/Jon expressed concern
    • Need clear action plan to get access to the UEFI v8 code from ARM
    • There is a severe risk of fragmentation for the UEFI v8 project if not started asap in Linaro
    • discussed the option to start activities under a proprietary license in a private git with involvement of those engineers who have access to the source code from ARM in their respective companies
    • (later update discussed after the session) given that both ARM and Linaro are members of the UEFI Forum, we should be able to share ARM v8 UEFI PI code in a private GIT under the UEFI Contributor agreement as the private patch review process before the UEFI spec update is published
  • GRUB2
    • Jon expressed concern about efforts to have it work, there is significant amount of x86 code
    • Leif: only the chain loading code needs porting, everything else is platform independent
  • OpenJDK
    • Leendert expressed concern that two resources in Linaro and two at Red Hat is not enough for any serious C1/C2 work. OpenJDK is a show stopper for ARM v8 LEG work
    • Concern on the governance of the ARM v8 OpenJDK project: who is driving it? the OpenJDK community, Red Hat or Linaro?
  • Verticals
    • Andrea highlighted that the ambitions of the verticals need review
    • if the ambition is to test, profile and optimise each vertical - as the roadmap slide shows - with few engineers, almost one per vertical, it is possible only to start scratching the dust
    • better to reduce the ambitions and statement to low hanging fruits

    • agreed to organize a dedicated session during the week
