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
