Proposed Topics (Tentative)

  • Overview of the thermal framework - Eduardo Valentin
  • Improvements on OF-thermal - Eduardo Valentin
  • Thermal class: split of temperature sensor device and thermal driver - Eduardo Valentin
  • Devfreq vs. clock cooling - Eduardo Valentin
  • Thermal Docbook - Eduardo Valentin

  • Open loop control governors
  • Sensor API


Discussion notes

This is a good place to record notes from your session. All too often, if notes were not written down, the session might as well not have happened.
