QEMU for and on ARM cores

QEMU KVM on ARMv7 support is upstream!

with one comment

This week the QEMU support patches for KVM on ARM were accepted into upstream. Since the kernel KVM on ARM patchset was accepted for the 3.9 kernel, this means that there is now enough support in purely upstream kernel and QEMU for basic working KVM on ARMv7 cores with the Virtualization Extensions (specifically, Cortex-A15). There are still a number of features left to be implemented but nonetheless I feel this is an important milestone. Thanks to everybody who’s played a part in getting us this far!
