A good understanding of the Linux kernel memory model is essential for
a great many kernel-hacking and code-review tasks. Unfortunately, the
current documentation (memory-barriers.txt) has been said to frighten
small children , so this workshop's goal is to demystify this memory
model, including hands-on demos of the tools, help installing/running
the tools, and help constructing appropriate litmus tests. These tools
should go a long way toward the ultimate goal of automating the process
of using memory models to frighten small children.
For more information, please see this microconference's wiki page .
For those who like getting a head start, this page also includes
information on downloading and installing the tools, the memory model,
and thousands of pre-existing litmus tests. (Collect the whole set!!!)
We also welcome experience reports from early adopters of these tools.
We hope to see you there!
Linux Plumbers Conference  will be held in Los Angeles, CA, US on
13-15 September in conjunction with The Linux Foundation Open Source
