The ARM64 linux ecosystem for servers is a fairly new and exciting place to be in. If there is one thing to be learned from the ARM32 world, it is the need to avoid fragmentation in various implementations of the ARM64 code. This presentation goes over some ideas and plans to help with this in the CPUfreq subsystem for ARM64 server drivers. More specifically, we will go over the proposal from the ACPI v5.1 specification to control CPU performance using the methods called CPPC (Collaborative Processor Performance Controls). With a standardized specification which is generic enough to express platform specific details, we aim to unify CPUfreq drivers in the ARM64 server space. The presentation will cover the concepts behind CPPC, its advantages and how to apply it to the Linux kernel today and ideas to exploit other CPPC capabilities in the future.
