I looked through the slides on the Hypervisor. They are using the FUSE package for I/O, which is very good for virtualization of file systems, but not so good at security. At best, it reflects the trust model of the underlying file system. The Android model of accessing the h/w through APIs (libhardware) is much better.

The GENIVI solution is lxc + SELinux. Do you have a basis for comparing that solution to the Android libhardware? A lot of car companies will run Android inside lxc. The Chevy Volt and new Cadillacs are doing so, I believe. See Iisko Lappalainen's 2011 Embedded Linux Conference Europe for the full-blown details. The OK Labs hypervisor with Linux and Android on top is also popular. I gather OKL systems are pretty locked-down. I guess Lockheed thinks so, as they just bought OKL.
