Follow-up: Power Architecture Related Tracks Proposed for UDS-r

A few weeks ago I posted about some tracks at UDS concerning PowerPC. Here are links to the session results.

I need to clean up the items. The main take away is that the PowerPC kernels will be maintained separately from the mainline kernels, which means we will be getting support for some new architectures. It will probably be a couple of weeks before I get this setup, but expect it nonetheless.

The other side is the boot loader. This is a tricky and complex implementation point. Details are in the session notes, but this may have implications based on relevant work being done on ARM as well.

That's the extent of it at this point. Looking forward to great things with Raring.

  1. How does PowerPC performance compare with other platforms? Particularly with the $200 developer platform mentioned earlier?
