Lin­ux­u­la­tor progress

This week­end I made some progress in the lin­ux­u­la­tor:

  • I MFCed the report­ing of some linux-syscalls to 9-stable and 8-stable.
  • I updated my lin­ux­u­la­tor-dtrace patch to a recent -cur­rent. I already com­piled it on i386 and arundel@ has it com­piled on amd64. I counted more than 500 new DTrace probes. Now that DTrace res­cans for SDT probes when a ker­nel mod­ule is loaded, there is no ker­nel panic any­more when the linux mod­ule is loaded after the DTrace mod­ules and you want to use DTrace. I try to com­mit this at a morn­ing of a day where I can fix things dur­ing the day in case some prob­lems show up which I did not notice dur­ing my testing.
  • I cre­ated a PR for portmgr@ to repocopy a new linux_base port.
  • I set the expi­ra­tion date of linux_base-fc4 (only used by 7.x and upstream way past its EoL) and all depen­dent ports. It is set to the EoL of the last 7.x release, which can not use a later linux_base port. I also added a com­ment which explains that the date is the EoL of the last 7.x release.

v4l2 sup­port in the lin­ux­u­la­tor now in 8-stable

I MFCed the v4l2 sup­port in the lin­ux­u­la­tor to 8–sta­ble. This allows now to use v4l2–web­cams in skype/flash on 8-stable too.

v4l sup­port in the lin­ux­u­la­tor MFCed to 8-stable

I merged the v4l trans­la­tion layer into the lin­ux­u­la­tor of 8-stable. As in -cur­rent, this just means that linux apps (like Skype) can now use FreeBSD native devices which con­form to the v4l ABI. The port mul­ti­me­dia/webcamd pro­vides access to some web­cams (or DVB hard­ware) via the v4l ABI.

Peo­ple which want to test the lin­ux­u­la­tor part should first make sure a native FreeBSD appli­ca­tion has no prob­lem access­ing the device.
