Ideas For Future Work

  • In kernel Neon optimizations
    • CRC32c-ARM NEON-optimized implementation to match Intel's SSE 4.2 version (Loic Minier)
    • XOR for s/w raid
    • AES, GHASH for crypto
    • IP checksum
  • OpenMax Wrapper for V4L API: http://lists.linaro.org/pipermail/linaro-dev/2011-February/002482.html

  • Thumb2 support for kprobes
  • KVM on ARM support
  • Virtualization and/or containers support?
  • Lightweight CPU hotplug for battery-life extension on multi-core battery-powered devices?
  • PREEMPT_RT patchset work (should a post 2.6.33-rt kernel ever appear).
