NetBSD now includes support for Marvell Armada XP SoCs. The port was done by Semihalf and sponsored by Marvell, who have generously agreed to release the source code.
This work was integrated into the NetBSD/evbarm port. The kernel for Armada XP is built from the "ARMADAXP" configuration.
Currently supported hardware include Marvell DB-MV784MP-GP development boards. Adding support for more Armada XP-based boards should be relatively easy.
The port includes support for the PJ4B CPU core and most of the SoC's peripherals:
- PCI Express
SMP and on-chip Ethernet are not supported yet (however it is possible to use a PCI Express based Ethernet card).
