This would be great, I've been trying (without success) to get an ARM
test runner up for several months now.

What hardware is this? Is it publically available for purchase? I've
been looking high and low for something with 2GB+ of RAM (I wouldn't
try running the regression tests with less than this) that I could get
Debian onto. I tried some cheap android stick that was made for
putting android on TV via a HDMI port, but I couldn't find a good
kernel for the Allwinner CPU.
