This presentation details the Linux kernel implementation on the new AArch64 architecture using the new instruction set, exception and memory models. The presentation will highlight the main changes from previous versions of the ARM architecture and corresponding Linux kernel support.
The presentation is aimed at Linux kernel developers and system programmers with an interest in the 64-bit ARM architecture. Some prior knowledge of Linux kernel architecture porting is assumed and general information about exception handling and MMU functionality will help. This session is important for people planning to work on AArch64 platforms.
