Intel Gets Back To Years-Long Journey Upstreaming PECI – Phoronix

Intel started supporting the PECI communication interface in the Linux kernel. PECI is the Platform Environment Control Interface and is for communication between Intel Xeon processors and BMCs / management controllers. Seems like an approach to make OpenBMC rich to support CPU package and DIMM temperature reading via Linux drivers. A move which AMD is still proprietary to provide the support.

Linux 5.14 Mainline Should Work With The Raspberry Pi 400 – Phoronix

With the DeviceTree addition for the Raspberry Pi 400. No kernel driver changes were needed since it’s basically very close to the Raspberry Pi 4 but the updated DTS configuration is needed for the 1.8GHz clock rate, a different WiFi chip, power off handling via GPIO, and no ACT LED on the 400 model.
