Kernel: AMD SMCA Updates, STM32MP1, and Rust

  • AMD SMCA Updates
    Hi all,
    
    This set adds supports for SMCA changes in future AMD systems.
    
    Patch 1 adds an "unknown" bank type so that sysfs initialization issues
    can be avoided on systems with new bank types.
    
    Patch 2 adds new bank types and error descriptions used in future AMD
    systems.
    
    Patch 3 adjusts how SMCA bank information is cached. Future AMD systems
    will have different bank type layouts between logical CPUs. So having a
    single system-wide cache of the layout won't be correct.
    
    Thanks,
    Yazen

    These latest AMD machine check error driver patches can be found on the kernel mailing list as they work their way towards the mainline Linux kernel.

  • Announcing buildroot-external-st, Buildroot support for STM32MP1 platforms - Bootlin's blog

    Back in 2019, ST released a brand new processor family, the STM32MP1, whose members are currently based on a dual Cortex-A7 to run Linux combined with one Cortex-M4 to run bare-metal applications, together with a wide range of peripherals.

  • Updated Rust Code For Linux Kernel Patches Posted - Phoronix

    In 2022 we will very likely see the experimental Rust programming language support within the Linux kernel mainlined. Sent out this morning were the updated patches introducing the initial support and infrastructure around handling of Rust within the kernel. This summer saw the earlier patch series posted for review and discussion around introducing Rust programming language support in the Linux kernel to complement its longstanding C focus. In the months since there has been more progress on enabling Rust for the Linux kernel development, Linus Torvalds is not opposed to it, and others getting onboard with the effort. Rust for the Linux kernel remains of increasing interest to developers over security concerns with Rust affording more memory safety protections, potentially lowering the barrier to contributing to the kernel, and other related benefits.

Tiny four-port net appliance runs Linux on Elkhart Lake

The NCA-1040 runs Linux on Intel’s quad-core, 1.5GHz/3.0GHz Atom x6413E or quad-core, 1.2GHz/3.0GHz Pentium N6415. Both Elkhart Lake processors provide Intel’s new AES-NI instruction set for network security, notes Lanner. The “fanless multi-service gateway” is aimed at “edge environment, branch offices and retail settings for applications such as routing, VoIP, VPN, firewall, IPS/IDS, web filtering, email server, high-volume storage and wireless networking hub,” says the company. Like Aaeon’s very similarly equipped FWS-2280, but unlike the previous Lanner systems, the NCA-1040 supports up to 32GB DDR4 3200 via a single slot. The 4x GbE ports use Intel i211 controllers. There is also an RJ45 console port. Read more
