raiden.net: The term "Firewall" originally came from the building trade and was typically a wall made of stones or bricks that was designed to confine a fire and protect the building by containing the fire in one place. In today's tech world, a firewall is something entirely different.

Kernel Space: Linux, Graphics

  • Mux Controller Subsystem Proposed For Linux 4.12
    A new subsystem has been proposed for staging in the Linux 4.12 kernel. Peter Rosin has requested Greg KH pull in the mux controller subsystem for the Linux 4.12 kernel. He explained of this new subsystem, "This adds a new mux controller subsystem with an interface for accessing mux controllers, along with two drivers providing the interface (gpio and adg792) and two consumers (iio and i2c). This is done in such a way that several consumers can independently access the same mux controller if one controller controls several multiplexers, thus allowing sharing."
