Of the right now shipping products, only exynos5 based (in arndale, chromebook, nexus 10 and some galaxy S4 phones) support the arm virt extension.

KVM should also work on OMAP5 (which developer boards supposedly are available), and the soon available tegra4 based designs (nvidia shield, hp slatebook x2). The Calxeda A15 based server cpu should available this year as well.

... And since about a month openSUSE has had a nice stack of Arndale boards running KVM based build hosts for the Open Build Service reference server! So, it is all there, ready to use. Arndale boards are quite affordable...

I've heard that the chromebook won't have firmware that supports virt though.

To get hardware virt on your Chromebook, you need to build the 3.9 kernel and replace the uboot in flash with a custom uboot that allows you to enter hypervisor mode.

BTW, if you do run the 3.9 kernel, don't expect things like the lcd to work. You'll have to either add a USB network dongle (for ssh) or solder wires to the UART pads.
