Today it has been 15 years since we mainlined support for Freescale/NXP's i.MX architecture in the Linux kernel! That was one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for (industrial Linux users') mankind :-) Here is some background about why it happened and what you might want to learn from history for your next embedded Linux project.
Several i.MX SoC versions, for example i.MX7D, i.MX6SX and the i.MX8 derivates are asymmetric multiprocessing (AMP) systems: They have at least one ARM Cortex A core and at least one ARM Cortex M core.
Every year's end-of-winter highlight starts next Tuesday: Embedded World 2018, and like every year, it is our main trade show and a good opportunity to meet many long-term customers in person. This year's highlight of the highlight: We have Etnaviv and Wayland running on MX8M!
Eight days after NXP announced the immediate availability of the i.MX 8M processor family, Pengutronix developer Lucas Stach today posted a first set of 11 patches to support i.MX 8M in the mainline kernel (linux-gpio, linux-clk, linux-arm-kernel and linux-netdev).
