In this presentation Alistair will talk about the work he and his colleagues did to add the RISC-V Hypervisor Extension support to QEMU. This allows everyone to use QEMU as a development platform for porting Hypervisors to RISC-V.

He will discuss how the RISC-V Hypervisor extension works and how it is different to other common architectures Hypervisor support.
