Linux Kernel Continues Prepping For RISC-V’s Updated Supervisor Binary Interface
RISC-V’s Supervisor Binary Interface “SBI” is the interface between the platform-specific firmware and the working working system or hypervisor for interacting with the supervisor execution setting within the larger privileged mode. The Linux kernel has been working to help a more moderen model of the SBI that’s extra extensible transferring ahead.
The RISC-V Supervisor Binary Interface v0.2 now has extendability in thoughts with the power so as to add extensions sooner or later whereas sustaining backwards compatibility. Linux kernel patches proceed to be labored on in supporting this up to date SBI interface for the Linux kernel.[Source: Phoronix]
