Qualcomm has heavily modified the Linux kernel and OEMs have taken that code largely unchanged and shipped it on billions of Android phones. Stephen will present an analysis of the 1.7 million line diff that lies between Qualcomm's Android kernel and upstream. He will highlight the main features that Qualcomm has added/modified and provide his thoughts on how to bring those changes upstream.
