[PROPOSAL] Android boot time improvements


; Summary: Android boot time improvements

; Proposer: Artemi Ivanov

== Description ==
Android boot time could be dramatically improved by leveraging checkpoints/snapshots approaches (might be sufficient for variety of products/use cases), on the other side it would be great to study deeper if Android cold boot speed could be improved, at least for automotive/IVI scenarios (get display/video/audio enabled early)

== Related work ==
* 0xlab survey - Shorten Device Boot Time for Automotive IVI and Navigation Systems; Implement Checkpointing for Android; Android Boot Time Optimization
* CELF Boot time page - http://elinux.org/Boot_Time

== Scope ==
* Leverage most powerful hw platforms (multicore Cortex-A15 SOCs, fast
storage, etc.)
* Get max of what could be optimized at bootcode/kernel level (this
could be done in a week or so - using boottime cook books)
* Try to get Android booting to UI/video/audio in a couple of seconds
range (i.e. custom/automotive-focused use-case)...
* Compare results with snapshots/checkpoints implementation

Efforts: 6-8 weeks
