## Discussions

### Debugging suspend/resume or graphics failures

* `drvctl -R`, `drvctl -S` for specific drivers or buses
* Improving crash dumps (same kernel issue, performance/zero pages issue)
* Setting up watchdogs at boot? (hardware, software)

### Blockers for NetBSD 10

* Extended attributes (EA) for FFS (related to the superblock)
* Update tool for EA will be relevant for 10
* Patch from Chuck Silvers (where?)

### Other issues with -current

* Crashy X applications, and weird trackpad on pinebook (to diagnose, should test with wsmoused)

### Ideas for NetBSD 11

* USB audio 2 (see wiki page for converting USB drivers to wireless, <https://wiki.netbsd.org/tutorials/converting_usb_drivers_to_usbwifi__40__9__41__/>)
* Converting wireless drivers (see <https://wiki.netbsd.org/Converting_drivers_to_the_new_wifi_stack/>)
  * Would be great to do `athn(4)`
  * Some hardware is hard to find, like `wi(4)`
* Better clock mechanism (related to Go’s performance issues)

## Varia
1. PGP Key signing or is that going out of style? - [ast@](https://marabu.ch/pgp/)
