BSP Layers and Reference Images for Yocto Project Issue Tracker

 

The following table contains known issues, scheduled bug fixes, and feature improvements for the Toradex BSP Layers and Reference Images for Yocto Project. The tickets are split in two major states:

  • Submitted (open): new features and bug fixes for BSP versions that have not yet been released. They may be scheduled for a specific release version; not planned; or in our backlog. All of them have one of the following states:
    • Known Issue: a bug or unexpected behavior that has been reported and pending a fix. Once fixed, the status will transition to Fixed.
    • Feature Request: a new feature that may be added to a future release. Once released, the status will transition to New Feature.
  • Released (closed): new features and bug fixes for BSP versions that have already been released. All of them have one of the following states:
    • Fixed: a bug that has been fixed and released.
    • New Feature: something that didn't exist before and was added to a new release.

Any schedules are not guaranteed but reflect the current planning. The planning could be shifted due to priority changes.
Issues that are scheduled for a specific version will be integrated into the mentioned version of the BSP.

We will update this table continuously in order to always provide the latest state of our development plan.

Please see also the Linux Support Strategy to learn more about the different releases.

ELB-4019New FeatureCMA Memory Too Large on Certain SKUsVerdin iMX8M Plus, Verdin iMX8M Mini, Apalis iMX8X, Colibri iMX8X, Apalis iMX8KernelLowNo

Description: CMA memory allocation is a fixed value and takes up too much space on certain SKUs. Drop the configuration of the CMA in the device tree in favour of specifying it in the kernel config with a size of 256MB or 12% of total memory which ever is less.

Description: Merge latest kernel.org 5.4 LTS commits: Mainline/upstream branch toradex_5.4.y and downstream NXP branch toradex_5.4-2.1.x-imx both updated to 5.4.77 with optional RT patch 5.4.77-rt43.

Description: Use KBUILD_DEFCONFIG in OpenEmbedded to define the defconfig to build the kernel from. Toradex is now using the defconfigs from the kernel-repo instead of providing separate defconfigs in OpenEmbedded. However if you wish to provide your own defconfig in OpenEmbedded you can still do so.

ELB-1845New FeatureSuspend / Resume SupportColibri iMX8XKernel, Power ManagementLowNo

Description: Add support for suspend/resume.

Workaround: To avoid crash on suspend, add the boot kernel parameter "clk_ignore_unused".

Description: With the move to the NXP L5.4.24-2.1.0 BSP we will have all our downstream and mainline/upstream Linux kernels based on 5.4. Using 5.4 based backports with this does not make any sense so drop it.
