Static Code Checking in the Linux Kernel - Arnd Bergmann, Linaro

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As a maintainer of the arm-soc tree, Arnd is responsible for the quality of a lot of new code that gets merged each release. His dirty secret is that he never runs any of it on real hardware, but that makes static compile-time checking at even more important.

In this presentation, Arnd shows his setup for finding and fixing bugs, and gives an overview of many of the available tools, including kernelc, sparse, coccinelle, clang, checkpatch and coverity.

Arnd Bergmann

Arnd Bergmann works for Linaro as one of the maintainers of the arm-soc tree, through which the platform specific code for ARM based SoCs are merged. As a long-time kernel contributor, he has worked on many CPU architectures and subsystems before that, and his current side interests include fixing the 2038 time_t overflow and removing outdated interfaces in the kernel.
