Neil Armstrong: "War Story: Using Mainline Linux for an Android TV BSP"

Description

War Story: Using Mainline Linux for an Android TV BSP

Android TV is a relatively recent Google Initiative to use the Android Operating System for TV Set-top-boxes, reusing the Phone Operating System architecture.
In the last years, the Android Hardware Abstraction Libraries were adapted/rewritten to use the modern and recent Linux APIs like DRM/KMS, V4L2 for Video Decode, ... allowing Android to boot and work with mainline Linux.
During last year, Neil was involved into an upstream-first open Android TV BSP, aiming to fully support AOSP for TV running on a Low-Cost generally available ARM based System-on-Chip designed for TV application. Neil will overview the requirements and struggles in term of system support, upstreaming & Android tweaking to enable AOSP to boot on such device, including the whole trusted boot chain, to graphical Linux with multimedia features enabled.
