SMP-ready USB stack on its way for NetBSD - testers welcome!
Matt Green has picked up Jared McNeill's work on
making the NetBSD USB stack SMP-ready.
Besides the USB framework itself, this is also relevant
for all the various drivers that can attach to USB -
starting form audio drivers over SCSI to serial (ucom) drivers.
While the work is far from complete, it is in a shape where
users are welcome to start testing, and where developers
are also welcome to help in converting more drivers!
Please join in and help test the code, and send your
feedback to the lists. If no serious issues come up,
the code will be merged within a week.
Matt's posting to tech-kern
for more details, inclusing diffs and links for
amd64 and i386 GENERIC (+usbmp) kernels.
Further information on the state of the code - what is and what is not
converted yet - can be found
in the TODO.usbmp file.
