At the moment I just want to see libc-testsuite results (or even a
smaller sample pthread_cancel test program) on real hardware. It is
tempting to get a real setup, but I'm still undecided how big my role
should be (i.e. how much of my time on musl I should spend) on testing
and playing with ports versus developing the core and laying the
groundwork for adding new ports (or for hard tasks like making dynamic
linking work with ugly archs like mips).
