It looks like farm27 is running:

    $ ldd --version
    musl libc (i386)
    Version 1.2.4_git20230717

Volunteers at have setup a new machine for the farm,
allowing to host small VMs relatively easily.

So far, we have setup two VMs:

- cfarm26, a 32-bit x86 Debian host that should look like the old cfarm45
  (but with a much newer Debian version).

- cfarm27, a 32-bit x86 Alpine host

The VMs have their /home mounted through virtiofs.  The actual storage is
a small ZFS array on the VM host.  Virtiofs should (hopefully) provide
good POSIX semantics, and apparently it is working fine with recent guest

The VMs are available in "beta" mode for now: let us know if they work
fine, if required packages are missing, if virtiofs causes problems, etc.
Things might break.

We have space for maybe 2-3 more VMs, ideas for OS are welcome.  We were
thinking of adding a regular x86_64 Alpine VM.
