Thanks for taking actions here, Greg! I think this is a step in the
right direction. I didn't have the time to try out the image yet, though.

To my understanding, you are manually creating those images so far,
right? Or did you also share somewhere some generation script or tool?

I've started some similar effort for our Jailhouse hypervisor, but there
with the idea to let the user build the images themselves:


This is currently limited to x86 and ARM64 (the latter is optional
because the build is not yet optimized), and we do not have a real board
in the portfolio yet, only QEMU / KVM. But that may change soon (I'm
planning to look into enabling some OrangePi next - Raspis are way too
broken for virtualization).

Maybe such a generating approach could be valuable for us as well (once
the remaining issues of that approach are solved). What do you think?
