Kernel bug hunting

Mercoledì 27 novembre 2019, ore 14.00, aula L1.3, primo piano, edificio Fisica, Dipartimento FIM, Modena

Relatore: Andrea Righi (kernel engineer in the Kernel Team at Canonical)

Abstract: Debugging is an essential part of Linux kernel development. In user-space we have the support of the kernel and many debugging tools, tracking down a kernel bug, instead, can be very difficult if you don't know the proper methodologies. This talk will cover some techniques to understand how the kernel works, hunt down and fix kernel bugs in order to become a better kernel developer.

Bio: Andrea has contributed to many open-source projects, with a particular interest in the Linux kernel. As an outcome of his development efforts he implemented the cgroup-io-throttle patch set, that ultimately evolved into the blkio cgroup controller (currently merged in the mainline kernel).
