Over the past two years, the support of the platforms based on ARM processor in the Linux kernel has evolved considerably. Between the use of the Device Tree, moving drivers in many features like clock management or multiplexing of pines, the platform mechanism, the changes have been numerous.
Through the experience of the speaker about the addition to the core support for ARM Marvell Armada 370/XP processors, this intervention will provide an overview of these changes in order to better understand the new organization of the code for ARM architecture in the kernel.
This talk is intended to be useful both for developers who want to add support for a new ARM processor in the kernel, but also to those wishing to understand the ARM code for porting Linux to a new card, or just the curious one.
