Android ICS and GCC 4.6: optimizations, benchmarks and future plans

Registered by Zach Pfeffer on 2011-12-14

Linaro ensures that ICS Android can be compiled against Linaro's monthly 4.6 toolchain drops and the original 4.4 toolchain from AOSP. This provides a great reference point for evaluating AOSP on 4.6 and should help when Google moves Android to 4.6. This session will look at whats been done, benchmarks current AOSP upstreaming and future plans.
