Avoiding regressions in the input stack is hard. Ideally, every commit and the ones before it are tested against every possible device. But the universe hasn't seen it fit to provide us with an army of people to test devices, infinite resources, or even a lot of time to spare. Pity, that, really. But we do have a computer, so that's a start.

In this talk we show how we moved from basically no regression tests 10 years ago in the input stack, to a state where every commit gets tested against variety of devices. We show how we can do CI on the kernel side, and how we can do CI on the user space side.
