As a maintainer of Boost.Atomic, I would appreciate more hardware
architectures, especially ARM. The real hardware is not mandatory for
this, as it could be emulated with QEMU, although the performance would
suffer (but could still be acceptable). Currently, I'm running this
setup locally. The question is who is going to run these QEMU VMs in the
cloud and how much it will cost.
