Out-of-the-box SPD support

an invention by jdelvare

In order to see the SPD (detailed memory information) data, the user currently has to manually load the needed kernel driver. Which driver to load depends on the memory type. Depending on the driver user, the devices may even have to be instantiated manually and this is a non-trivial multi-step task. Plus you need to be root to do it. I would like to attempt to automatize all this at least in the most common and simple cases like Intel x86 desktop. The idea would be to figure out the memory type and the I2C address of the SPD EEPROMs based on DMI data. If the DMI data is of good quality then it should be possible to automatically figure out which driver to use and to instantiate the devices at boot time.

Investigate C-Sky architecture

an invention by a_faerber

The youngest architecture addition to the mainline Linux kernel was C-Sky (arch/csky/). I have a GX6605S board booting a downstream 4.9 kernel. It uses a proprietary GxLoader bootloader (similarities with U-Boot exist but no sources...) with uImage and gx6605s.dtb files in a FAT partition on USB stick.

mailprocessing performance improvements

an invention by jgrassler

I maintain the mailprocessing utility, a Turing complete maildir and IMAP capable filter with rules written in Python, both upstream and in openSUSE. It is currently suffering from some performance problems I'll devote my Hackweek (or part of it) to improving. Most notably the following areas will need some attention: * Ability to deal with large inboxes. This one is already done and I have been using it myself for a while but not released, yet. If you urgently need it feel free to grab it from the master branch. I'll give it another once-over before release, but it should be fine.
