Microsoft tweaks Windows 10 on Arm64 to play nicely with KVM

A funny thing has happened on the way to 19H1: an Azure OS kernel engineer tweaked Windows 10 to make the operating system considerably more KVM-friendly.

Reg reader Waseem drew our attention to a GitHub thread, which consisted mostly of FOSS fans working on the drivers needed to get the Arm version of Windows 10 up and running on a variety of hardware (including Android phones).

This, in itself, is nothing too new. Since Windows 10 on Arm first appeared, an army of tinkerers have been attempting to run the thing on hardware other than the first wave of Snapdragon-based notebooks. A lot of effort has been focused on the Quick EMUlator (QEMU), the Linux incarnation of which has seen some success in getting the OS running.
