Ubuntu Test and Validation of the big.LITTLE ARM Reference/Integrated Switcher

Registered by David Zinman on 2012-04-02

Test and validate the big.LITTLE ARM Reference Switcher, integrated with Fast Model and running with the Ubuntu based rootfs.

Test steps and descriptions for the ARM Reference Switcher described at:
https://docs.google.com/a/linaro.org/document/d/14Kta4wQ0QdKlO_iQ41EolkLm-pxw_Ggh_OW-ca6BEvM

Goals:
 - Automate and execute the test cases and scenarios described at https://docs.google.com/a/linaro.org/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AroPySpr4FnEdGttYkhCUGVzZ2JOS0tGaU1QUm9wOHc#gid=0
 - Report back all issues at the ARM Reference Switcher project
 - Integrate the automated test cases at Lava, for continuous validation and further validation with the Integrated Switcher
