Currently I believe the only BMC SOCs supported in mainline OpenBMC are
the Aspeed AST2x00, Nuvoton NPCM, and HP GXP chips, all of which are ARM

A project with OpenBMC running on a PowerPC-based BMC was also announced
recently (https://codeconstruct.com.au/docs/dcscm-openbmc/), though I
don't think any of that work has made its way upstream so far.

I don't know of any RISC-V based efforts though.

Not that I've heard of at this point.
