Meeting Agenda]]

=== ARM Status  ===
 P/omap4: since a critical bug (lp963512 - "Latest kernel updates broke
video on omap4") was affecting 3.2.0-1410.13, for beta2 the kernel was
reverted to a previous working version (3.2.0-1409.12). AFAIK the
regression came with latest rebase on master (3.2.1[0-2]) while the TI
BSP was unchanged - so it's either a bad interaction between upstream/TI
BSP or it's a and new bug we got from upstream.
 lp956693 ("Broken perf with Ubuntu-3.2.0-1408.11 at Pandaboard"): one
of the patch from Linaro tried to enable perf hw support but it wasn't
ready for prime, reverting it gave us perf ba
 ck in a working shape.
 lp666267("Cross compiled headers package breaks DKMS compilation"): two
patches that address this issue were resurrected from O and ported to P,
scripts/* are correctly cross compiled no
