2nd Google Summer of Code 2014 project was merged to master

"Public Pool of Bugs in Linux Kernel Modules" project developed during Google Summer of Code 2014 in favor of The Linux Foundation was merged to master
Added by Evgeny Novikov almost 4 years ago

Vitaly Mordan successfully finished Google Summer of Code 2014 project Public Pool of Bugs in Linux Kernel Modules under Evgeny Novikov supervision.

In summer of code Vitaly made the following:
  • Wrote a comprehensive specification of Public Pool of Bugs in which all requirements of LDV Tools developers for that project were considered.
  • Extended linuxtesting.org in order to present LDV Tools verification results beyond the ISP RAS. New web pages were developed to represent full information about found bugs/false alarms (for the Linux kernel developers) and to edit information (for the LDV Tools developers).
  • Extended LDV Knowledge Base and LDV Analytics Center in order to make it possible to publish verification results (such as kernel version, module, corresponding error trace, verdict, etc) to linuxtesting.org and to synchronize them later.
  • Developed an authorization module for LDV Analytics Center to exclude an accidental publishing of unnecessary data, so only authorized users could publish verification results.

All changes to LDV Tools components were merged to master in 363f810.

Completing this project made possible to share any new found potential bugs in Linux kernel modules with its full description with the Linux kernel developers. In future this project will increase the number of found bugs in Linux kernel modules with the help of LDV Tools.
