ThanksĀ Peter,

I will go through the Xilinx example.

In upstream we can handle having asymmetric configurations
as long as all the CPUs are the same basic architecture:
so you can have for instance an Arm Cortex-M and a Cortex-A
in the same board model (there's a xilinx board model
with a mix of cortex-a53 and cortex-r5 cores in the tree).
But we can't handle having multiple different architectures (eg
Arm and x86) in the same board at once. It would be nice to be
able to do that, but it would require a lot of untangling of
things which currently assume various parameters that are
guest-architecture-specific are compile-time fixed things.
So far nobody has been sufficiently interested in having
asymmetric configs to put in that work.
