Keynote: Linux Kernel SoC Support Mainlining Tips (By a Bunch of Other French People) - Thomas Petazzoni, Free Electrons
Over the last three years, Free Electrons has consistently been in the top 20 companies contributing to the Linux kernel by number of included patches. With only 6 full time engineers, we managed to push several hundreds of patches to the mainline Linux kernel to add or improve support for various ARM processors.

In this keynote, we'd like to share our experience on this mainlining effort, highlight the key factors leading to that success and the common obstacles to overcome.  Hopefully other companies or organizations that would like to work with the upstream Linux kernel
community can gather tips and start contributing more efficiently.

And of course, we'll be explaining why we refer to ourselves as "a
bunch of other french people"!
