Improve QEMU test coverage

Registered by Peter Maydell on 2011-05-26

At the moment we have a very basic automated continuous integration setup: it builds qemu-linaro from git and confirms that two images (beagle, versatile) boot OK. We should extend this to cover other architectures, linux-user testing, and ARM correctness testing. We should also set up automated benchmarking of builds so that we can track whether performance is improving or not.

We had a session at UDS-O which covered this. If we can provide straightforward instructions for what needs testing the validation team should be able to set something up either via jenkins or abrek or both.
