Hi Andrii,

Thank you very much for your explanation about the use case in previous email!

Yes. I searched around for the "Jacinto 6" Automotive processor.[1]
It uses Cortex A15 processor...
However, I tried the Arndale Octo board two years ago
(http://www.arndaleboard.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page). From my
previous experience, the board may not be supported by Xen even though
the processor it uses has virtualization extension.. :-(
That's why I asked if the board itself can run Xen. If the board can
run Xen, I would like to buy one and try it out. :-)
