Advanced Size Optimization of the Linux kernel - Tim Bird, Sony Mobile Communications

Sign up or log in to save this event to your list and see who's attending!

This presentation will cover recent research by Tim on aggressive size reduction of the Linux kernel. This will include results from using gcc link-time optimization (LTO) with the ARM architecture (using Andi Kleen's out-of-tree patches), as well as results and discussion of other optimization techniques (including whole-system optimization for embedded devices).

This talk is directed at kernel developers interested in reducing the size of their Linux systems (and possibly improving their performance in the process). The talk will be highly technical.
