NETWORKING: Cavium GPL and proprietary code separation for Wind River Linux 2.0 SP3

Released: Feb 21, 2011     Updated: Feb 21, 2011


This requirement is built on top of two other requirement
WIND00118045 - Command line debugger support for Cavium SE

Currently Cavium provides crypto middleware, higher performance SPI-4.2 and ethernet drivers, packet filter/offloading functions. These are all proprietary code. They use the proprietary licensed version of the simple executive to offload processing to other cores. WRLinux 2.0 shall include scripts and build infrastructure for this, but not redistributing Cavium's proprietary code.

WRLinux 2.0 shall make sure the Simple Executive GPL and the Simple Executive Proprietary sources are in one location (each) and various demo applications (standalone Simple Executive, kernel modules, and demo
applications) may be built off the common sources. Naturally the GPL sources will be provided and fully supported with all the scripting to work in the WRLinux build system, and everything but the actual proprietary source from Cavium would be distributed for the proprietary stuff.
