Greetings, I'm developing a product based on KVM/ARM, in which i need to modify the code that is responsible for entering into guest mode(i.e. EL1?) and i don't really want to recompile the kernel and flash it again as part of my development. I need to run on baremetal(on the board itself) when testing my code.
Any plans for supporting this in the near future? or any other suggestions on a less painful development process? Thanks, Mike.
