Firmware Summit results

Al Stone of Red Hat posted a summary of the recent Firmware Summit that took place at the recent Linaro Connect event.

There’s a discussion on the state of ACPI on ARMv8, and Linux support. “So, please tell Linaro if there is something needed from the ACPI spec.  Call, write or send carrier pigeons, just let us know.
