KVM Virtualization Still Being Ported To 64-bit ARM

2013-May-16 | Tags: 64bitvirtualization

Linux on ARMAfter KVM virtualization was brought to ARM last year with the ARM Cortex-A15 SoCs supporting hardware virtualization, support for the Kernel-based Virtual Machine for 64-bit ARM (AArch64) SoCs is being prepared.

Back in March I wrote about the initial AArch64 KVM port and now the code is up to its fourth revision. The 64-bit ARM KVM virtualization support is similar to the 32-bit ARM code and the code allows for 4k and 64k pages, 32-bit and 64-bit guests, and PSCI support for SMP booting. Testing so far has been done via AEMv8 and Foundation models with Ubuntu, openSUSE, and Debian distributions.
