Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"The Linux 2.6.38 kernel that was released in February of 2010
removed Android code after Linux kernel developers alleged that it
wasn't being maintained properly. Friction between Linux and
Android developers boiled over in the summer of 2010, as each side
blamed the other for not being in the Linux kernel. Since then,
tempers have cooled and an understanding has been reached and with
Linux 3.3, Android is back.
"Turns out I was wrong, we want these in the tree," Linux kernel
developer Greg Kroah-Hartman wrote in his code commit adding
Android drivers back into the Linux mainline.
