KVM Changes Land In Linux 5.16: RISC-V Hypervisor Support, AMD PSF Control Bit | Michael Larabel, Phoronix

Last week the Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) feature patches were sent out and subsequently merged for Linux 5.16.

Arguably most notable for KVM with Linux 5.16 is the introduction of the RISC-V architecture code for the Kernel-based Virtual Machine. The KVM RISC-V hypervisor support depends upon the RISC-V ISA’s hypervisor extension, which was recently frozen. Now to wait for RISC-V processors to market that are performant and supporting the extension…
