Linux SoC Patches Revised For The AMD Pensando Elba
Sent out this week was the fifth iteration of the enablment patches for what's now referred to as the AMD Pensando Elba SoC and sent with an AMD.com address, just weeks after the acquisition was completed. Indeed part of these "v5" patches is just about renaming references from Pensando to AMD-Pensando. The patches also re-base against the latest upstream Linux state and other basic changes.
Pensando Systems has been contributing to the Linux kernel even prior to the start-up exiting stealth mode. AMD purchased the young company for $1.9 billion USD to expand its data center offerings.
