other-misc

September 29

https://launchpad.net/linaro-graphics-misc/+milestone/2011.09, blueprint: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/linaro-graphics-misc/+spec/engr-profiling-gpu-perf-2011.09

Not released yet

Perf events for GPU drivers - as perf supports system-wide events (soon), it would be really useful to have the kernel device drivers for GPUs generate perf events to improve profiling.

Also for memory management the 1109 milestone is https://launchpad.net/linaro-mm-sig/+milestone/2011.09, there is quite a lot of work which is done by Graphics members.

Team Highlights

  • Blueprints for 1109 updated
  • Discussion on how to make the linaro-mm-sig patchset available. In summary, Jesse is preparing a GIT tree to contain the patches available, including components from the Video side (eg OMAP DRM driver (maybe others too), xf86-video-omap open source xorg driver). The tree can be made available as a meta-pkg for the Linaro main release in September (add-on "use at own risk" since all this is work still in progress and not upstreamed completely)
  • The group will also discuss by the end of August how to make Unity/Nux available in 1109 - perhaps through an Oneiric experimental build.
