How much of what you described above can be blamed on just stumbling along new bugs by introducing new software versions versus maybe just not having the ability to quickly diagnose bugs in the first place?
Say if this project described on the following article is successfull?:
So if that makes it much easier to dectect and isolate bugs (say make it more obvious were in the hardware->application toolchain the bug is occuring) would it have a positive affect on embedded developers to be able to track closer to mainline kernel?
Could it it be that lack of good debugging tools for Linux is going to hold people back from using newer Linux versions?
Or is it that what you have now is good enough for embedded developers and such things probably aren't going to make anybody's job any easier?
