Default FreeBSD comes to Amazon's lightweight hypervisor

From https://www.theregister.com/2022/10/...s_lightweight/

The FreeBSD developer who brought FreeBSD to Amazon EC² has now got it working on the company's lightweight Firecracker hypervisor.

"AWS Community Hero" Colin Percival is the developer of the Tarsnap online backup service and the portsnap tool for updating FreeBSD. It's thanks to his efforts that FreeBSD is supported on Amazon EC².

Now, he has announced that FreeBSD supports another new platform: Amazon's Firecracker hypervisor. The Reg covered Firecracker when it was announced, and when Amazon cut the price of the Fargate "serverless" platform that Firecracker supports. It's derived from the lightweight Rust-based crosvm which is part of Google ChromeOS.

This has meant making multiple adjustments to the FreeBSD kernel to allow for restricted set of services that Firecracker offers to its so-called "microVMs."
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
