Hi Chen,

would you mind if I refresh the wiki with other information that could help to 
setup the boot process for the uEvm? I'm making some order in my notes and I 
would like to share them (e.g., adding CONFIG_ARCH_VIRT for the domU, how to 
boot domU, the userspace, how to setup u-boot specific for the board, etc).

By the way, another question: did you experience any failure of the FTDI chip 
on the uEvm? Mine is completely dead and the plug shows evidence of oxidation.

Best regards,
