Fedora is facing an issue running armhf under virtualization on arm64:


Unless the discussion has moved somewhere where I can't follow it, no
one seems to have solid idea what is going on.  It's also not clear
that this configuration has substantial vendor or community support.
This makes me concerned that virtualization is a viable path forward

(The discussion on the GCC list started off with a misdirection, sorry
about that.  The brief assumption that this was a hardware quirk is
likely quite wrong.)

I'm surprised to read this.  ppc64el features prominently in the
toolchain work I do (though I personally do not work on the GCC side).

MIPS-based architectures.
