Whiteboard

I've called out the extra work in supporting this new model for the remaining months of the cycle.

The document step is to make sure we have a record of what's there so that when the TSC asks 'do we have a good A9 model', there's a detailed answer.

https://wiki.linaro.org/PeterMaydell/QemuVersatileExpress has a first pass at documenting what is and isn't implemented and how to use it with Linaro snapshots.

The end-of-cycle write-up is at:
