This talk is is an adaptation of the "Linux Kernel Code Reviews" class I have taught at Intel this past year. It will be adapted for public consumption and trimmed down to fit the time limits for an ELC talk. This talk may be useful to newer upstream developers hoping to pass a LKML code review as well as developers doing work on older kernels for integration.

At the end of this talk you will understand some of what Linux kernel code reviewers are expected to look for as they review changes going into the Linux kernels used in product integration. With this understanding you will know what is expected from your own code in a code review and hopefully avoid delays in getting your own code deployed. It will also help put the engineer in the mindset of customers who the code is ultimately intended for and help avoid embarrassing challenges from customers after your code was written
