Meeting Agenda]]

=== ARM Status  ===
 Q/master: lp1176977 ("XFS instability on armhf under load") - passed
all xfs
 tests (tested both on arm and x86), but there's still one patch missing
 waiting to enter linux-next for 3.11).
 */highbank: lp1182637("cpu_offlining fails to run on ARM") - indeed, it
was a
 firmware issue: updating the node to the last available firmware, made cpu
 hotplugging work - lp1185669 ("CPU cores offline and can't be brought
back up on
 ARM Server card") is probably a dup.
 R/master: lp1171582("hvc0 getty causes random hangs"), seems like i can
 the presence of a jtag console (DBGAUTHSTATUS NSNE bit) and thus attach
or not
 the xen console to it, i'll give it a try.

=== Status: Saucy Development Kernel  ===
 Our Saucy unstable branch has been rebased to the latest v3.10-rc6
 upstream kernel.  We unfortunately have still not uploaded yet.  We are
 still awaiting fixups for a few DKMS packages.  We hope to upload by EOW
 or early next week.  In the mean time we have gone ahead and rebased our
 Saucy master branch to the recent v3.9.6 upstream stable kernel and
 For our phablet kernels we have been investigating some kernel size
 constraints and the modules which we have enabled and built in.
 Important upcoming dates:
 Thurs June 27 - Alpha 1 (opt in)
