Device Mainlining BOF
The purpose of this session is to review the current status of kernel support for various SoCs used throughout the embedded Linux industry, and evaluate and discuss ways to improve mainline support for them. The current activities of the CE Workgroup Device Mainlining project will be presented. Some of the items discussed will be:
1) best-practices for mainlining that have been proposed
2) tools for upstream analysis
3) ways to help weary maintainers
Come learn about this issue, and see what can be done to improve mainline support for your favorite processor, going forward.

Device Tree NG BoF
Device Tree development seems to be accelerating, and new concepts are being introduced (and I am one of the parties responsible).
A BoF that addresses the new kernel facilities will be helpful to embedded developers that want to use it.
Topics covered:
* Device Tree Overlays
* Device Tree Changesets
* Device Tree variants (quirks) for significantly reducing the number of DTs for minor board differences.
* Using Device Tree for device dependencies and fixing the probe order mess.
* Dynamic Device Tree node generation for probeable devices.
* Writing a Device Tree Overlay manager for your own board.

and more.
