VIRTUALIZATION --
Back in March 2019 when Intel announced Sound Open Firmware, they also announced ACRN as a small footprint hypervisor intended for real-time and safety-critical use-cases. Now with Linux 5.3 this IoT-focused hypervisor can handle Linux guests on the ACRN hypervisor.

With Linux 5.3, there is ACRN guest support for this lightweight hypervisor.

This guest support took just dozens of lines of code and was enabled as part of the x86/platform changes for v5.3.
