Live Patching MC

Corinthia Hotel Lisbon



The main purpose of the Linux Plumbers 2019 Live Patching microconference is to involve all stakeholders in open discussion about remaining issues that need to be solved in order to make live patching of the Linux kernel and the Linux userspace live patching feature complete.

The intention is to mainly focus on the features that have been proposed (some even with a preliminary implementation), but not yet finished, with the ultimate goal of sorting out the remaining issues.

This proposal follows up on the history of past LPC live patching microconferences that have been very useful and pushed the development forward a lot.

Currently proposed discussion/presentation topic proposals (we've not gone through "internal selection process yet") with tentatively confirmed attendance:

5 min Intro - What happened in kernel live patching over the last year
API for state changes made by callbacks [1][2]
source-based livepatch creation tooling [3][4]
klp-convert [5][6]
livepatch developers guide
userspace live patching
If you are interested in participating in this microconference and have topics to propose, please use the CfP process. More topics will be added based on CfP for this microconference.
