What kernel versions should be supported?

Post by DavidG » Thu 25. Nov 2010, 14:48

At the moment I am working on a newer phc-k8 driver, which will be based on the latest powernow-k8 code.

However, since the Cpufreq subsystem has been subject to a lot of changes in the last couple of Linux kernel versions, it already took me quite some effort to add support back to 2.6.32, which is what Ubuntu 10.4 LTS is using.

Since it is seems an even bigger struggle to add support for 2.6.31 and 2.6.28, I am wondering what kernel versions are being expected to be supported by new Linux-PHC drivers?

Thanks in advance for your feedback!

Oops, apparently the poll was only accessible to a selected few, I hope I fixed it now...

Would be great to see it on Kernels 4.x, best if as module, I guess.

I'll be trying it out on a Thinkpad T500 to get familiar with it, alzthough I am using haswells (4300m to 4712m) now.
