Overview

Status

kernel-maverick-bios-test-automation (0/0/12)

It is desirable to be able automatically test specific BIOS functionality, such as suspend/resume, hibernate, wakeup, fan control, battery, C states etc.. to locate and hence be able to fix or workaround BIOS/ACPI errors. Also, it's desirable to add more kernel debug into hibernate/suspend code paths to help automatically to pin point BIOS errors. We propose a tool + kernel debug to do this automatic testing + diagnosis.

Todo

kernel-maverick-config-review (0/0/4)

Review of the kernel configuration for Maverick. This will concentrate on confirming the policy for various option type, as well as new options. For major new options, discussion and confirmation of the selection of each.

Todo

kernel-maverick-misc (0/0/7)

This is a catch all blueprint to capture and track any misc Kernel related work items. Each item doesn't warrant having an individual spec in itself, but still represent a task we'd like to complete.

Todo

kernel-maverick-new-kernel-on-lts (0/0/3)

Continue to Evaluate, Specify, and Deliver backported kernels for Lucid LTS.

Todo

kernel-maverick-pv-ops-ec2-kernel (0/0/1)

The current EC2 kernel is based on the very large Xen patchset. A pv-ops based kernel would need a much smaller set of patches which could be maintained as a kernel flavor instead of the topic branch used for the current EC2 kernel.

Todo

kernel-maverick-tracing-support (0/1/6)

New kernel tracing functionality will enable more efficient debugging of kernel issues. Analysis tools are provided to examine the data more rapidly and accurately. Scripts are provided so an end user can easily run them and upload results to a launchpad bug.

Todo

kernel-maverick-ubuntu-delta-review (0/0/1)

Review of the current Ubuntu Kernel delta. This session will look at the current delta comprised of both patches to the core and the ubuntu specific drivers. The aim is to record what we are carrying, review the reasons for that component(s) to be carried, and recommend replacements, updates, cleanups, upstreaming etc of those components.

Todo

kernel-maverick-union-mounts (1/0/3)

Union mounts have seen progress since last time they were evaluated as a replacement for aufs. Determine whether union mount are nit a viable alternative for Maveric and if the work required to maintain them will be less than aufs.

Todo

kernel-maverick-upstart (0/0/2)

How do Upstart and planned changes affect Kernel?

Todo

kernel-maverick-version (1/0/2)

Discussions on the likely mainline kernel version for Maverick.
