[Trisquel-users] Virtualisation (Theoretical)

Virtualization software might support passthrough of PCI devices,
handling the physical hardware in guest (KVM does support it).  If the
host driver doesn't handle the device, the guest can.

The kernel has no restrictions on what modules or drivers can be used,
the provided modules are modified to not include nor recommend nonfree
firmware, with a side-effect of not supporting loading it without
replacing the kernel or module.  Future Linux-libre versions will
probably fix it.
