I was looking at the ticket #2733(Related to your SPI issues) and potential
project for GSoc 2017 for Raspberry Pi
the one I find interesting is "Convert the existing SPI support to the new
Linux SPI API and test with SPI devices".
I have gone through the wordpress bolg(https://asuolgsoc2014.wordpress.com/)
of André Marques to understand the SPI API developed by him as a part of
GSoc 14,15 . I am going through his code which he commited in RTEMS
repository in GitHub (
I have also gone through blog post of Mudit Jain(
http://rtemsgsoc2016-mudit.blogspot.in/) also i have gone through code
which he commited in RTEMS repository in GitHub (
I have also read about how to port drivers from FreeBSD to Rtems/libBSD as
posted by Ragunath in his blog post (
I have also read the Alan Blog post(
on how to compile GCC and RTEMS for arms and I am trying to get that
running on my system . I will share the results as soon as I finish with
For the project the API which is refered to is that André Marques developed
What is the new Linux here been refered to?
Can you please tell me the basic structue of what is to be implemented as
the part for this project.
