What are programmers afraid of?

The programmers, like all people, have phobias. Someone is afraid of maniacs, someone is a duck, who is watching a person, someone is panicking in violation of the usual routine of the day, someone starts to poke from suddenly disappeared communication in the smartphone.

The process of porting Linux device drivers

Hello, readers!


Sometimes it happens that there is a need to switch to a newer version of the Linux kernel and, accordingly, carry out the transfer of existing device drivers.
The process of porting Linux device drivers  
The transfer process can take from a few minutes to a longer period of time. It depends not only on the complexity of the driver, but also on which and what version of the kernel you are going to go to (the API has the property to change - hence all the problems come from), and also from the quality of code implementation, it is sometimes easier to rewrite than transfer , but this will not happen.
Unfortunately, I...[/h]
