Linux on ARMCitrix has brought the Xen hypervsior to the ARM Cortex A15, which uses the ARMv7 virtualization extensions.

With ARM beginning to enter the high-performance server world, virtualization support will be critical for cloud computing and ARv7+ hardware has processor extensions for supporting hardware virtualization. This Xen support is early work in enabling things work out.

"The port is based on xen-unstable (HG CS 8d6edc3d26d2) and written from scratch exploiting the latest virtualization, LPAE, GIC and generic timer support in hardware," from the mailing list message.
