ARM SoCs in the Mainline Linux Kernel
The ARM architecture currently supports the widest range of any CPU we support in Linux, with over 80 SoC families and 1500 individual machine types being supported on 32-bit and 64-bit ARM as of linux-4.19. Over time, we managed to minimize the amount of code that is required for adding a new board and even an SoC family to keep this manageable. This involved splitting common functionality out into separate driver subsystems, adopting device tree descriptions, improving automated code testing and changes to how the code is maintained. In the presentation, I explain what changes were done over the recent years and where I expect things to move in the future. For developers working on out-of-tree SoC platforms and boards, I explain how to become part of the community and work with us to get the latest products supported in an official Linux release.
