Kernel-Based Virtual Machine Ported To ARM64 58

hypnosec writes "Linux KVM has been ported to ARM64 just ahead of the release of the architecture, it has been revealed. Just last year ARM KVM virtualization support for Cortex-A15 32bit ARM processor was published. Marc Zyngier of ARM released a set of 29 patches that contained the implementation of KVM for ARM that depends on the pre-arm64 rework as well as tiny perf patch published earlier. Some of the newly released port are support for 4k and 64k pages and 32-bit as well as 64-bit guests."

    The US Government have had 64 bit Risc systems running Lisp based OSs since Roswell, but they've been gradually leaking out the technology so as to avoid temporal anomalies the sort of alien attack that wiped out the dinosaurs. The reason for that attack is that velociraptor sapiens had discovered a language very similar to Smalltalk which meant their embedded systems (e.g. spaceprobes) didn't crash and burn with kernel panics and null pointer exceptions when things got a bit tricky. Also they knew that the galaxy is full of life and all of it was made out of meat. Other, older, civilisations felt this was a bad combination.
