AFAIK, the work was limited to supporting libvirt LXC on ARM
with OpenStack. No one in their right mind should use that since
it offers no meaningful security, since there was no work done
to make OpenStack request use of SELinux or AppArmour for LXC.
Linaro is actively working on libvirt ARM for Openstack it but from
some of their status reports the progress is slow.
I've not seen any patches (upstream at least) to support KVM on
ARM in OpenStack from any Ubuntu devs, or indeed from anyone at
Well Linaro is working on it, I get the feeling they're not at the
We're still pretty early in terms of KVM support for ARM, so one
of the bigger problems is anyone getting access to hardware to
actually test it with. I expect that will change significantly
over the next year, to the extent that KVM + ARM will be more
easily consumable by devs, and thus I'd expect OpenStack to have
support for KVM ARM at some point during this next year. If no
one else submits the changes required, I'll likely try to do
I think this is something we should aim for soon but not now, it'll
become more relevant when aarch64 lands.
