I have just talked to a colleague at SUSE about this and apparently Alex Graf from SUSE’s QEMU/KVM team has fixed many bugs regarding ARM32 on ARM64 virtualization. If I understand correctly, SUSE builds ARMv7 on ARM64 without problems.

I have reached out to Alex Graf and asked him for clarification on what possibilities we currently have.
