+      <p>This summer we've started porting bhyve onto ARMv7
+	platforms.  We rewrote the low-level routines for ARM processors,
+	while trying to preserve the hypervisor API originally created for
+	the x86 architectures.  We managed to bring up a &os; guest up to
+	the point of initializing interrupts.  There is still work to be
+	done in order to virtualize the interrupts and the timer.  As
+	short-term plan after finishing the interrupts and the timer is
+	porting to a real hardware platform (Cubie2).
