[edk2-devel] [PATCH 3/3] OvmfPkg/RiscVVirt/README: document direct kernel boot
Posted by Laszlo Ersek 5 months, 2 weeks ago
Direct (fw_cfg) kernel boot works on the RiscVVirt firmware platform too;
I've tested it after extracting the kernel, initrd, and kernel command
line from "openSUSE-Tumbleweed-RISC-V-E20-efi.riscv64.raw". Document this
type of boot, because at least historically, fw_cfg kernel boot was
implemented differently between OVMF and ArmVirtQemu. Thanks: Drew, Sunil.
