   72: ## Release notes (top)
   73: 
   74: * Support for Aarch64 (ARM 64-bit) machines.  
   75:   The aarch64 port should work on many Allwinner machines, SBSA/SBBR compatible servers.  
   76:   It supports multiple processors, including in a big.LITTLE configuration, ACPI and UEFI.  
   77:   It uses a single kernel to support a large amount of boards with the help of ACPI+UEFI or FDT.
   78: * Updated graphical acceleration support from Linux 4.4.  
   79:   Intel graphics including Kaby Lake. Nouveau and radeon.
   80: * nvmm(4) - hardware-accelerated virtualization, currently supporting x86-SVM.  
   81:   a patched QEMU package exists that utilizes this.  
   82:   XXX make statement reflect reality at the time of the release.
   83: * KASLR - kernel address stack randomization.  
   84:   Note that the default kernel does not use this option.  
   85:   XXX maybe link for how to use it, then.
   86: * kASAN - kernel address sanitizer build option, to detect memory access violations, for x86 and aarch64.
   87: * kUBSAN - kernel undefined behaviour sanitizer.
   88: <!-- XXX kamil please list more things about micro-UBsan, MKLIBCSANITIZER, etc. -->
   89: * KLEAK - detects kernel memory leaks.
   90: * bwfm(4) - Broadcom Full-MAC wireless driver at PCI and USB (from OpenBSD)
   91: * ena(4) - Amazon.com Elastic Network Adapter (from FreeBSD)
   92: * GCC leak sanitizer support
   93: 
   94: ARM hardware support:
   95: * Support for running on Amazon AWS ARM instances.
