Upstream ADI Linux

Hello, is it planned to push drivers from ADI kernel (4.0) to upstream Linux? Or at least update ADI kernel to some longterm release (like 4.4, which has projected EOL on Feb, 2022)? I have noticed that Blackfin processors were in upstream kernel until march this year, so I would like to know if you have some "upstreaming" plans for SC5xx processors.

  • Hi Jan,

    we are currently working on an update the the kernel for ADSP-SC5xx which will be based on an more recent upstream version.

    By the time we publish we expect this to be the 4.19 LTS release.

    Our plan is to release this via Github and to actively work on upstreaming our content and helping to maintain those in upstream from then on.

    We are hoping to have more news about this some time early in 2019.

    Unfortunately we are not planning on pushing the older 4.0 based kernel changes upstream.



  • Hi dave,

    what a wonderful news! I am looking forward to checking your git repository when it is ready.

    Thank you,

    Jan Havran
