I was wondering about this just yesterday. Will this eventually lead to a situation where we can have a single firmware image which is shared between all guests, a la OVMF/AAVMF, with grub and the kernels stored on the virtual disk itself, like on most other architectures? That should make it less awkward to add RISC-V support to libvirt, plus I expect it to be kind of a requirement for full distribution support, especially when it comes to updates and such. -- Andrea Bolognani / Red Hat / Virtualization
