BFS 0470 Sync-up patch for 4.7 kernel is available

My porting of BFS 0470 Sync-up patch for 4.7 kernel is available.
It contains all-sync-up works from release to release and mainly the sync-up work for 4.7 kernel. It's working and suspend/resume also seems good considing the cpu hot-plug api updates from the upstream.

Have fun with this "pure" BFS patch with 4.7 and I am working on -vrq branch.

  1. Umm :)

    1. Cool, I'll quick look into the difference in my porting and 0472 and rebase to 0472 soon. Hopefully the cpufreq related issue can be fixed in 0472 :)

  2. OK, I've re-tested 4.4 just to be sure:

    [~]$ uname -a
    Linux spock 4.4.0-pf9 #1 SMP Sat Jul 16 17:44:47 UTC 2016 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    [~]$ uptime
    19:46:06 up 13 days, 20:25, 2 users, load average: 0.59, 0.47, 0.48

    Now switching to locally compiled 4.5 to get proper crash and send you my build tree. Stay tuned.
