Out of curiosity, how does this compare with the SiFive board? Also, why
do you compare with arm64 in particular? Did you mean amd64?

Not that my opinion matters much, given that I began fiddling with
riscv64 yesterday and will probably have little time in the future to do
more, but if real hardware was available, I would consider using it
(also) as a porterbox, given that human time is much more expensive than
CPU time.
