      Description

      Rationale

      There is a need for a standard and simple way to configure hypervisors for static scenarios, i.e. for situations where the number of VMs is known beforehand.

      System device tree is adding a standard specification to configure static hypervisors via device tree. It allows for a static boot time configuration of a hypervisor like Xen with dom0 and multiple other
      virtual machines, device assignment, etc.

      Scope

      • System Device Tree specifications changes
      • Xen as a reference implementation

      High Level Deliverables

      • Finalize hypervisor support in System Device Tree
      • Implement the specification in Xen as a reference

      Staffing

      TBD

      Target Platforms

      The following boards were discussed but not decided on:

      • MacchiatoBin board
      • Qualcomm RB5 Platform
      • NXP LX2K board
      • Pine64Pro

      Risks and Assumptions (keep it updated as you learn more)

      Closeout Criteria

      This initiative will end when XXXX is complete.
