Support for x86 Android Emulator (KVM, vmx, svm)


we’re running Integration test for our Android Application on Travis. For Integration tests we want to start an emulator. Currently we use the armeabi-v7a Image which is pretty slow and the api levels available with those images are getting old.

The current emulator Images are only available for x86, so it would be nice to be able to run them on Travis. Currently this fails because:

emulator: ERROR: x86_64 emulation currently requires hardware acceleration!
Please ensure KVM is properly installed and usable.
CPU acceleration status: KVM requires a CPU that supports vmx or svm

I created a repository on github for checking this:

seems like there is this feature request which is exactly what I would like: Add KVM support
