Birds of a Feather (BoF) Birds of a feather (BoF)


Guillaume Tucker (Collabora Limited)


Testing the upstream kernel is not an easy task. The burden is
still largely put on developers, although several projects are
now covering parts of it such as 0-day, LKFT, CKI, Coccinelle,
syzkaller and While they all tend to have their
own speciality, they also face a lot of similar challenges.

This BoF is to give an opportunity to exchange ideas and bring
together people from the upstream kernel testing community. Are
there ways to share kernel builds, platforms or code between
projects to remove duplication of efforts? Which open tools are
you using, and is there a need for anything new? Which areas of
the kernel are suffering the most from a lack of test coverage?
How does one even power up a dev board in a lab?

Tackling these problems requires a lot of energy. Last but not
least and thanks to Collabora, attendees will be offered food
(if the venue permits it)!
