Small footprint openflow controller written in golang

an idea by spacefito

SDN controllers have been around for a while. But all of them seem to attempt so much and do so many things. I would like to create a mini "sdn" controller which is just an openflow controller that connects to an instance of openvswitch, and uses openflow rules to do some mathematical analysis on ip traffic going through the switch.

Learn KMS / DRM graphics driver internals - implement virtual/software KMS driver

a project by vliaskovitis

I want to understand the basics and architecture of KMS / DRM drivers in the kernel (also in mesa, but this project is more about the kernel-side). I will read docs and attempt to implement a virtual kernel-mode-setting driver (vkms) as described in Documentation/gpu/todo. This would be a KMS driver for a fake modesetting graphics device, just using normal system memory. This can be useful for learning, but judging from dri-developer discussions, also useful for testing hotplug races, plane blending and finding other KMS/DRI infrastructure bugs. Some items to implement:

DMI table conformance checker

a project by jdelvare

The SMBIOS specification includes an informative annex providing conformance guidelines for DMI table implementations. I would like to write a checker tool to verify the conformance of DMI tables, based on this document. Such a tool could be useful for system firmware writers. We already have dmidecode which is able to locate and decode DMI tables. It should be fairly easy to reuse the same core and add an alternative structure parser, which would perform the checks instead of printing the decoded information.

Investigate how to use fuzzy tools reproduce bugs

a project by yosun

We used trinity to make fuzzing test, but it hard to reproduce bugs. I'd like to try to use syzkaller or other fuzzy tools to find a stable process to reproduce fuzzy bugs.

exceptional: Wrappers for C++ Exceptions.

a project by jwilliamson

Sometimes, you want a flexible way to handle certain situations involving C++ exceptions, particularly those for which alternative actions are either easily encapsulated, do not substantially interrupt the program flow, or must cross a foreign-function interface or thread boundary. A useful idiom is to rewrite attempts to perform an action with such forms of exception handling as instead returning a monadic value, like with C++17's std::optional<>:
