Grant Grundler

Biography

Grant has been working on IO subsystems since the mid 1980s. This includes new chipset support and debugging many device drivers. parisc-linux got Grant involved by writing about 5K LOCC for two different IOMMUs, PCI host controllers, core interrupt handler, and SMP bringup.

The past 4 years (its been that long?!!) has been focused on ChromeBook storage, networking (USB ethernet), and misc drivers (IOMMU, thermal sensors, CPU watchdog). To understand why ARM Chromebooks were crashing more frequently than x86 machines, he started sorting kernel crashes reported (opt-in) by users and reporting statistics about those crashes.

Grant also teaches an introductory class to kitchen knives at Google, volunteers regularly at bikex.org, plays outdoors when he can (MTB, fishing, body boarding, snow skiing), makes/repairs both wood and LED projects.
