Microconferences at Linux Plumbers Conference: Compute Express Link

Linux Plumbers Conference 2022 is pleased to host the Compute Express Link Microconference

Compute Express Link is a cache coherent fabric that is gaining a lot of momentum in the industry. Hardware vendors have begun to ramp up on CXL 2.0 hardware and software must not lag behind. The current software ecosystem looks promising with enough components ready to begin provisioning of test systems.

The Compute Express Link microconference focuses around how to evolve the Linux
CXL kernel driver and userspace for full support of the CXL 2.0 and beyond. It is also an opportunity to discuss the needs and expectations of everyone on the CXL community and to address the current state of development.

Suggested topics:

  • Ecosystem & Architectural review
  • Future kernel work – regions
  • QEMU support now and later
  • Security: IDE and SPDM
  • Avoiding vendor specificity
  • Collaboration on Future Spec enhancements
  • Type 2 accelerator support (bias flip management)
  • Hot remove
  • RAS (GPF, AER, Poison handling)
  • 1.1 to 2.0 compatibility
