Linux Kernel Bug fixing is all about finding and fixing the bugs, which is majorly handled by syzkaller and reports generated by syzbot. Finding the bugs from the syzbot dashboard. Targeting the device drivers with syzbot and fixing the generated errors. The main topic of discussion would be errors with the USB and PCI devices. While working with world's renowned open source community like the Linux Foundation, you come across some great people to share and collaborate to enhance your skill set and information. The guidance of the mentor always helps you in your project. Experiences with the mentor Shuah Khan were just amazing. She being the mentor always provides you with the opportunities and let's you learn what's essential and takes care of all the circumstances and scenarios. Under the Linux kernel bug fixing project I came under certain tasks and procedures like fuzzing, dynamic and static analysis, event tracing and decoding the stack traces. I generated panic in the kernel and read about fixing the panic. I learned about QEMU, Buildroot, Syzkaller and GDB and the most important among them is the kernel mailing list to look upon what can be done or further improved.
