Running bhyve on a AMD 1075T Phenom

Hi Aryeh, Will bhyve ever support AMD directly and, if not, will the above project be included in the future releases? Yes - the project branch will be merged into HEAD when it is done. Not sure if it can make 10.0. If not, will definitely make 10.1 later, Peter.

I already have the sources for head Can I just grab the vmm driver in the tree with the AMD stuff and plug that in the sources that I already have? I think that should work (though, the resulting vmm.ko will only work on an AMD system) later, Peter.
