Intel's reference BSP / Android stack for its last 3 generations of SOC has
been experiencing the challenges of the "embedded problem" where we get a
hardened kernel / OS stack hardened on time scales larger than the Linux
release cycle. This results in harder efforts WRT upstreaming drivers and a
failure to enable any community participation for SOC specific driver work.
This talk will introduce the scope of the effort WRT the intel SOC's and
explain how we've fell into the problem. Then we will go into how we are
trying to address the problem more effectively.
