Intel OTC


I am the maintainer of the Linux kernel’s core power management code (PM core), cpuidle, cpufreq, and the ACPI subsystem. I work at Intel Open Source Technology Center as a Software Engineer with focus on the Linux kernel. I have been actively contributing to the Linux kernel since January 2005, working on the suspend and hibernate subsystem, on power management in general (including runtime PM, PM QoS etc.), and on the ACPI and PCI subsystems.

Proposals for this user

* ACPI And Device Trees - Friends Or Foes? (Confirmed)

The audience are Linux kernel developers working on device drivers and the driver core as well as anyone interested in the interactions between the kernel and the platform firmware. Attendees can expect an overview of the problems addressed by ACPI and Device Trees, an outline of similarities and differences between the two platform firmware interfaces, a description of kernel modifications that would allow device drivers to use configuration data provided by the platform firmware in a uniform way, regardless of which firmware interface (ACPI or DT) is used by the given platform, and more.
