Support GSoC student in upstreaming Android emulator code

Registered by Peter Maydell on 2011-05-26

Currently the Android emulator uses an elderly fork of QEMU; they've cherry-picked some later fixes, but unfortunately never had the resources to try to upstream their device models or rebase on newer upstream QEMU versions. There is a QEMU Google Summer of Code project to start by doing upstream QEMU versions of the Goldfish virtual platform devices; I (Peter Maydell) am the official 'mentor' for the student. Google suggest that this will take an average of 5 hours a week from the mentor until the end of August; this blueprint tracks that resource commitment.

Actual progress in the GSoC project work is being tracked by Patrick in a blog: http://gsoc11-qemu-android.blogspot.com/
