You as well!

I have never worked on QEMU, so, from a technical perspective, I don't
know a lot.  But, as a company, we've done a lot -- for example, the
ARMv6 and ARMv7 support comes from CodeSourcery, and from Paul Brook in
particular.  I know that we did provide a version of QEMU that would
boot standard Linux kernel images from linux.on-arm.com, and that
building out more support for more virtual boards is definitely
something we're capable of doing.  As you suggest, we use QEMU
internally for testing, in addition to physical hardware.

I will forward your email to Andrew and Julian, who are our initial
Linaro people.  We are working now on defining a workplan for the rest
of the year, and I thinking putting some QEMU activity on that would
likely make a lot of sense.
