The Linux Plumbers 2019 RISC-V MC will continue the trend established in 2018 [2] to address different relevant problems in RISC-V Linux land.

The overall progress in RISC-V software ecosystem since last year has been really impressive. To continue the similar growth, RISC-V track at Plumbers will focus on finding solutions and discussing ideas that require kernel changes. This will also result in a significant increase in active developer participation in code review/patch submissions which will definitely lead to a better and more stable kernel for RISC-V.

Expected topics
RISC-V Platform Specification Progress, including some extensions such as power management - Palmer Dabbelt
Fixing the Linux boot process in RISC-V (RISC-V now has better support for open source boot loaders like U-Boot and coreboot compared to last year. As a result of this developers can use the same boot loaders to boot Linux on RISC-V as they do in other architectures, but there's more work to be done) - Atish Patra
RISC-V hypervisor emulation [5] - Alistair Francis
RISC-V hypervisor implementation - Anup Patel
NOMMU Linux for RISC-V - Damien Le Moal
