=== Highlights ===
* Posted "Remove define CONSISTENT_DMA_SIZE" patch series to
linux-arm-kernel for review. This was part of the 'single zImage' work
done at Linaro Connect in the previous week.
* As part of the work for blueprint "Investigate block allocation in FS"
wrote program to issue writes to SD in various sequences to try and
get a handle on algorithms used by SD cards. (Seems to be not as
simple as we assume.)
* Spent time on tasks in preparation for officially starting work at
Linaro in September.
=== Plans ===
* Modify flash simulation program to match real SD cards performance (or
give up trying to match 'difficult' algorithms.)
* Run flash media use cases with different ext4 options.
