BSDNow’s episode of the week has a number of Raspberry Pi-specific items, plus a discussion of iocage which I was not familiar with.
The DragonFly installer now supports UEFI directly. There’s a uefi(8) man page now, and there’s even rconfig support, though not enough people realize how awesome rconfig(8) can be.
I had a spurious carriage return in the RSS feed output that some I think xerxes based RSS readers like spaRSS didn’t like. It’s fixed now – can someone else running spaRSS confirm in a comment? Or just confirm that you aren’t getting RSS errors now if you were for the last few days.
SemiBUG has a meeting tomorrow, and Craig Maloney will be talking about Ansible. Patrick McEvoy may be streaming the proceeds, too. Are you near Detroit? Then go!
[Update, 2017-01-16 20:48 UTC: All issues have been resolved and NetBSD.org should be functioning normally now.] As some of you may have noticed, the netbsd.org DNS records are broken right now. Two independent incidents caused this to happen: UC Berkeley stopped providing secondary DNS service for netbsd.org at [...]

A New Year, a New Round of pop3 Gropers from China Every time we lift a pallet from the shipping room, the server times out. The Hacker News thread has some good stories, too. (via (Read more. [...]
The NetBSD Foundation took part in the 2016 Google Summer of Code. Hrishikesh Goyal worked on the project \"Implement Ext4fs support in ReadOnly mode\". He tackled two features of an ext4fs implementation: extents and HTree DIR read/write support. His work was committed into the NetBSD source tree in multiple commits. charles cui worked on [...]
This turned into a BSD User Group event list, which makes me happy. There was nothing like that 3 or 5 or whatever years ago. OPNsense 16.7.13 released Documenting NetBSD’s scheduler tweaks NetBSD 7.1_RC1 available 12? PowerBook G4 PT5 – Electronic Battle Weapon WiFi: 11n hostap mode added to athn(4) driver, testers wanted Would you b [...]
The ncv(4), nsp(4), and stg(4) drivers are now removed from DragonFly. So is the portal file system. Also, though not a removal, vm.swapcache.use_chflags now defaults to 0. Does this affect you? Almost certainly not! I feel compelled to point it out, though, just in case there’s that one person who didn’t want a surprise.
Martin Pieuchot has written another article chronicling the modernization of the network stack. Martin writes, I wrote a second article about the network MP thingy. The article talks about a new API built on top of a generic solution for a MP problem. The article, A story of if_get(9), is a followup to the part one article we [...]
This week’s BSDNow has extended notes about FreeBSD and lld, the LLVM linker, plus notes on the NetBSD scheduler, OpenBSD changes, and so on. It’s very ecumenical.
The i915 driver has been updated to match Linux 4.6 – this is of most benefit to the owners of newest hardware, but the commit message lists what has changed, for owners of Haswell series GPUs and later.
Avoid possible side-channel leak of ECDSA private keys when signing. A source code patch exists which remedies this problem: for 6.0. for 5.9 This is related to CVE-2016-7056 \"ECDSA P-256 timing attack key recovery (OpenSSL, LibreSSL, BoringSSL)\" Additional details can be read here: http://seclists.org/oss-sec/2017/q1/52 [...]

If you are on DragonFly -master, now is a good time to update. Matthew Dillon has been changing how DragonFly handles locking and memory use, with differences in the vmstat structure and page coloring, some memory settings, and many other locking changes. I am only linking to a few examples. If you don’t want to dig through those (R [...]
That’s Non-Uniform Memory Access, to disambiguate. Matthew Dillon’s changing how memory is allocated in DragonFly. NUMA is been a long-discussed and complex topic for a long time, so I will point at the initial commits and call it “a developing situation”.
OpenBSD as WiFi access points look set to be making a comeback in the near future. With this diff https://marc.info/?l=openbsd-tech&m=148396652007923&w=2, Stefan Sperling added 802.11n hostap mode, with full support initially for the Atheros chips supported by the athn(4) driver. This diff adds 11n support to the athn(4) dri [...]
