Shuffling Zombie Juror – aka Linux kernel 3.16 – wants to eat … ARMs?
You'll be excited by 3.16 if you're keen to run Linux on Samsung's Exynos or other ARM SoCs. Those keen on ARM CPUs as data centre alternatives to x86 will be pleased to note work to help Xen virtual machines suspend and resume. There's also a boot-from-firmware feature on ARM.
Collectively, these three additions inch Linux towards being even more attractive and capable on ARM platforms, which will interest those keen on making the architecture a viable data centre alternative.
