Reading time:

Following our blog post from earlier this month, we have now submitted a patch to introduce kci-gitlab, a GitLab-CI pipeline for kernel testing. This initial version includes static checks (checkpatch and smatch for now) and build tests across various architectures and configurations. It leverages an integrated cache for efficient build times and introduces a flexible 'scenarios' mechanism for subsystem-specific extensions.

The following video provides a quick demo of how this new testing pipeline works:

GitLab is an Open Source platform that includes integrated CI/CD. The pipeline provided in this patch is designed to work out-of-the-box with any GitLab instance, including the gitlab.com Free Tier. If you reach the limits of the Free Tier, consider using community instances like https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/. Alternatively, you can set up a local runner for more flexibility. The bootstrap-gitlab-runner.sh script included with this patch simplifies this process, enabling you to run tests on your preferred infrastructure, including your own machine.

For more detailed information, please refer to the documentation included in the patch, or check the rendered version here.

Please don't hesitate to share your thoughts and suggestions on this initiative below. If you would like to further support the development and advancement of kci-gitlab, please contact us!
