FS#1337 - ARM (aarch and armv7h) porting

The unfortunate reality is that x86 computers come encumbered with built-in low-level backdoors like the Intel Management Engine , as well as nonfree boot firmware. This means that users can’t gain full control over their computers, even if they install a free operating system such as Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre .

Hyperbola is working hard to fix these issues and getting closer every day, but for the time being, this is why many current Respects Your Freedom (RYF) offerings are refurbished older devices.

For the future of free computing, we need support architectures that do not come with such malware pre-installed, and ARM A7/A53 promises to be a great architecture example for low-power computers, laptops and embedded systems.

NOTE: ARM porting is focused only for HyperbolaBSD .

Only focused on Hyperbola BSD? Well, sounds good to me!
I think I prefer it this way. BSD is lighter on resources anyhow!

Thanks Andre! Now I have a reason to use any fully free arm based laptops that come out.

Will this support 64 bit arm processors too? Just curious.

Thanks regardless though! :)

Yes... you did mention that. But anyways, that's not why I am posting here right now...

You do plan to support more than just routers right? Any ARM stuff that can be used with only free software, you will support too right? Aka, like a laptop or, a netbook, desktop (if any run on it)

:)

Routers for the short term will be in the HyperbolaBSD's plans apparently, very long term goals on the other hand... who knows. ;)

I write this for non developers.

ARM has TrustZone. It's better than x86 but not completely backdoor free.
