I'm interested in participating in this years edition of Google Summer of Code.

I the last years I did a lot of work on hypervisors. Currently I'm working with 
a hypervisor on ARM
for my master degree. On previous projects using x86, the ability to do a quick 
debugging run using
QEMU with SVM support helped me a lot. However, the ARM version of QEMU is 
still lacking this useful

Initially I wanted to propose the implementation of ARMv7 virtualization 
extensions. I know this is
not supported at the moment. Also based on the documentation I found I thought 
it is still untouched.
However, when I looked at git log I saw that there is some preparation to 
include EL2 support (LPAE,
nested paging preparation, etc).
Is there demand for a GSoC project to further ARM virtualization extension 

I have some experience with the QEMU codebase. In my bachelor thesis I adopted 
QEMU (1.0 war stable
at the time) to execute guests deterministically (in particular SMP guests).  
However, this work was
never submitted upstream due to the different focus.

I appreciate any comments.

Best regards
