With the RISC-V support in Linux 5.3 there is now support for huge-pages, image header support (based on the ARM64 kernel image header), initial page table setup is split into two stages, CONFIG_SOC support has been started with initially catering to the SiFive SoCs, high-resolution timers and dynamic ticks have now made it into the default RISC-V 64-bit default configuration, and other low-level work.
