[Barrelfish-users] Is there a barrelfish implementation on dual or quad core arm AP?

Dear Grant, 

Others on the list will probably answer as well, but at ETH we support
Pandaboards based on the TI OMAP 4460 SoC, which I think is an example
of the kinds of AP you are talking about.   Supporting others is of
interest to us, but not a core engineering priority right now.

If you decide to do another port, we can certainly provide advice on
how to integrate support for other cores and platforms into the
current tree, and we'd certainly welcome any contributions you might
wish to make. 

Best regards,
