Nicolas Pitre has been a Linux developer on the ARM architecture since
1995. He started maintaining the Linux port for the StrongARM SA1100 in 1997 and has been an active member of the ARM Linux community since then. In the last 15 years, he worked closely with a few silicon vendors to add Linux support for various ARM based products while adding some core features to the ARM kernel such as EABI and highmem. His latest contributions revolved around
power management for ARM’s big.LITTLE. Code efficiency and binary size has always been a pet peeve for Nicolas which also prompted him to contribute improvements to gcc on a few occasions.
