Meeting Agenda]]


=== ARM Status  ===
 P/omap4: mainly config changes trying to mimic master/generic config as
much as possible. The dss/video issue (lp963512) found in the previous
rebase is still unresolved (waiting for a new panda board since my own
broke down exactly the day after the issue came up) - for the time being
(kernel freeze) we are gonna stay with 3.2.0-1411.14 as it is good and
no one complained about it, but as soon as i get the new board, it'll be a
 lp971091 ("Pandaboard ES freezes with the default CPU scaling governor
ondemand"): i'm investigating this one with the reporter (sending debug
kernels&c).
