Rebase Snowball onto the Upstream Kernel

Registered by Zach Pfeffer on 2011-09-21

We're aiming to have all of the Android trees on the upstream kernel that John Stultz maintains at:
git://android.git.linaro.org/ kernel/linaro-android.git
branch:
linaro-android-3.0

The current STE tree is not based on this. This BP will track rebasing the STE tree on this tree.

Whiteboard

[mathieu.poirier, 2011-10-26] The current GLK3.0 is carrying 1415 patches on top of mainline, something that is causing horrible headaches. Moreover many conflicts exist in the mmc area, something that is being completely redone within STE at this very moment.
To make the situation more manageable the STE-LT is splitting the GLK3.0 in topic branches and once this exercise is over we will create an android topic branch based on John's 3.0 androidization. From there we will move to 3.1.
Given the amount of work involved this is being pushed to 11.11
[dzin 2011/11/25] moved to 11.12
[dzin 2011/12/21] moved to backlog for review

Headline:
The Android Snowball build is now based on the common upstream Android tree

Acceptance:
Snowball is based on the upstream Android tree

This activity is currently on hold to favour enablement of Wifi and accelerated graphics on the 3.1 kernel.
