Debugging the Linux Kernel with GDB [ELC 2016]

Presenter: Kieran Bingham
Summary: This presentation gives information about the different ways in which GDB can be used to debug the Linux kernel.
In particular the talk focuses on the ways in which GDB can be made to have better "Linux Kernel Awareness "
to improve the debugging experience. The presentation will look at how Linux Kernel Awareness can be implemented by either
extending the GDB python interface or as GDB extensions written in C.

Understanding ARM HW Debug Options [ELC 2016]

Presenter: Michael E. Anderson, The PTR Group
Summary: This presentation talks about what are the features of debugger interfaces and how can you use them to debug low-level code
such as drivers in the Linux kernel? Also describe each of these interfaces and how they are used with a live demonstration
of OpenOCD and its use to debug Linux kernel code.<>br

Presenter: Jim Huang, South Star Xelerator
Summary: uVisor is a tiny hypervisor / microkernel-like security kernel at the foundation of mbed OS dedicated to ARM Cortex-M processors
to secure firmware updates and the cloud.This presentation introduces uVisor,it's feature and debug facilities.

Current Challenges in UBIFS [ELC 2015]

Presenter: Richard Weonberger, Sigma Star GmbH
Summary: UBIFS is a filesystem that is designed to run over UBI. This presentation gives information about UBI, it's example
UBIFS, fastmap and challenges in UBIFS.
