I noticed yesterday that a new branch named "imx_3.10.17_1.0.0_ga" has appeared on Freescale's linux-imx-2.6 git repository.  This is the first activity to appear in nearly four months.  A few dumb questions:

  • What is the nature of this branch?  The "ga" suffix is ambiguous (it could mean "general access," or it could be short for "gamma" (the letter after beta)).
  • Is this a final release for Yocto Dora?  If not, when is a final release anticipated?
  • There are some PCIe patches we've applied that do not appear to be in "ga".  In particular, there's a patch we applied that more correctly changes the link to Gen2 speeds.  "ga" appears to have no functional equivalent to this patch.
