Docs for the Holidays

In case your a bit behind in picking out a gift for that special device-driver- writer on your list, may I suggest one of these lovely errata docs that have just been published:

Hummingbird & Phantom
(Errata)
UltraSPARC IIe & IIi Errata doc available(18-Dec-07)    
Cheetah+ & ++
(Errata)
UltraSPARC III+ & III++ Errata doc available (18-Dec-07)    
Jaguar
(Errata)
UltraSPARC IV Errata doc available (18-Dec-07)    
Panther
(Errata)
UltraSPARC IV+ Errata doc available (18-Dec-07)  

If you think he or she might be more of a host bridge kind of person, these have also been added since my last update:

Psycho
(Errata)
U2P, UPA to PCI host bridge Errata doc (download) available (13-Nov-07)



Schizo
(Errata)
Safari to UPA and PCI host bridge Errata doc available (18-Oct-07)


These are all part of the FOSS docs project that we embarked on in the summer.

Implementation and thanks

In case you're wondering what you can do with a doc like these, look at what OpenBSD have done with the docs for Cassini and the Happy Meal Ethernet controller. (There are more examples but these are the two most recent having just been added by David Gwynne yesterday.)

I'd like to give a special thanks to Dorthe and all the engineers who hunted these docs down, reviewed and scrubbed them so they could be published externally.  All this work was done on top of their day jobs.  Happy holidays to all of you!

Look for more docs in the new year. 

Pau for now...

About

I look after Sun's relationships with the various GNU/Linux communities as well as our relationship with the FSF. Last year, my family and I emigrated from Silicon Valley to Austin, TX.
