Big.Little.Switcher Project


Given the recent announcement by ARM of the big.LITTLE architecture, which pairs a multi core A15 block with a lower power multicore A7 block in a cache coherent SMP configuration, a software architecture is required for running Linux on big.LITTLE hardware. ARM have open-sourced 'proof of concept' code. The goal of this project is for Linaro to port the code to gcc/gas, integrate into the kernel build, test, and merge into mainline.
