Our team of engineers who went to the Embedded Linux Conference Europe made a selection of talks they liked, with a short summary: https://t.co/BZ4EEOp79b. A good way to spot interesting content from this conference!
If anyone wants to follow along with booting a Clang-built CFI-enabled x86 kernel, I've written up the instructions to build the latest LLVM and @samitolvanen's LTO/CFI/SCS tree. Enjoy! https://t.co/WwBrVvz09x
"[…] decided that there's no real downside to just doing the rc8[…] Nothing really looks all that worrisome from a release standpoint[…] give the tires a final few kicks before the expected 5.4 release next weekend[…]"
https://t.co/G2P1KVCy8T One of the most innovative talk (by @_AlexGraf) I saw in KVM. Propose to put VMM device emulation code *in guest* BIOS SMM by exposing PV interface to vSMM that allows intercept PIO & MMIO by vCPU. Significantly reduce attack surface and simplifies host.
If you're going to watch one talk this week, you should definitely watch this talk on object-oriented programming techniques in C. It has code examples from the Linux Kernel/Git codebase and very well explained cool Maths theorem references. 😍https://t.co/RcIFNft79g
