Open Source Switching: Upstreaming ONIE NVMEM and switch BSP drivers

An overview of a DENT upstream WG project and network switch board support in the Linux kernel

As open source network switching gathers momentum there is significant work being done to upstream support for network switch devices in the Linux kernel. The DENT project is an open source network operating system utilizing the Linux kernel, switchdev, and other Linux-based projects, hosted under the Linux Foundation. This talk will present case studies of driver development for platforms supported by the DENT project — the ONIE NVMEM driver and the switch BSP driver.
