It looks like the iwl driver is slightly broken in the 2.6.26 release - connections will drop-out after 10 seconds or so.
I've recently been working on some changes to the spufs code, and thought I'd write-up some of the details.
Seeing as the QS22 blades are out, here's a short guide to getting debian installed.
In part two of this series, we had just ported a fractal renderer to the SPEs on a Cell Broadband Engine machine. Now we're going to start the optimisation...
The next revision of IBM Cell Broadband Engine machines has just been released - the QS22 blade. The QS22 has five-times the double-precision floating point performance of the previous Cell blade (the QS21), but is instruction-set compatible. This is also the first Cell/B.E. machine to use DDR2 memory, and can hold up to 32GB.
In the last article we finished with a SPE-based fractal renderer, but with a limited maximum fractal size of 64 × 64 pixels:
After going through the magical approval process, I now have a spufs git tree published on kernel.org.
