Quick hack: Experiments with crosvm

Posted on 09/11/2017 by Tomeu Vizoso in Blog

Running crosvm outside Chromium OS is quite easy, with the only complication being that minijail isn't widely packaged in distros. In these instructions, we hack around the issue with linker environment variables so we don't have to install it properly.

Tracing memory leaks in the NFC Digital Protocol stack

Posted on 06/11/2017 by Thierry Escande in Blog

Kmemleak allows you to track possible memory leaks inside the Linux kernel. Basically, it tracks dynamically allocated memory blocks in the kernel and reports those without any reference left and that are therefore impossible to free.
