Arguably most notable is RISC-V now supporting non-volatile memory devices with the Linux 6.2 kernel. In particular, persistent memory “PMEM” support is wired up with this kernel for mapping and accessing the memory device. The RISC-V PMEM support depends upon the Svpbmt and Zicbom RISC-V extensions for handling it.
