"The upstream linux kernel code base is large and complex. The changes are voluminous. Testing these changes is challenging because of the speed and the diversity of the changes. Many companies are attempting tackle this problem through the use of automation and CI (continuous integration).

However, just throwing bots at the source code and building it can only solve so many problems. Upstream folks have said that kernel drivers account for the bulk of the churn in the code. Therefore any automated and CI solution needs to handle the diversity of hardware required to verify all the changes.

This talk will discuss what Red Hat is doing in this space and how we will contribute to stabilizing the upstream linux kernel using our Enterprise class hardware."
