50 Minute Talk
Scheduled: Wednesday, September 18, 2013 from 2:00 – 2:50pm in Celestin A

One Line Summary

The target audience for this talk is kernel developers interested in enterprise server type hardware controlled by UEFI and ACPI during its boot and run cycle, UEFI/ACPI kernel developers who have been working on x86 and interested in the changes required for arm/arm64 support for these standards, and finally those kernel developers who are working on arm/arm64 systems interested in UEFI/ACPI support.


As ARM and ARM64 move out of gadgets and into more PC like hardware, there has been an increasing demand for the same tools to manage these devices as already exists in x86 world. Linaro has been working on UEFI and ACPI on arm/arm64 hardware and this talk is a summary of the current status of the work and the direction that will be taken in the future. We will show the areas of change to the ARM platform boot sequence, change to the ACPI core code, and change to drivers to support ACPI.
