I've got a couple raspberry pi 4's that are running tests (slowly, takes
20+hrs to run the test suite...any earlier models just didn't have enough
ram). Look at the teeks99-05* (armv71/armhf) and teeks99-06* (aarch64).

If anyone has access to a RISC-V development board, I'd like to get my
hands on one of those to start running too.

I've debated trying QEMU for more variety, but that has always taken a
back seat to getting the working compilers providing results more quickly.

At one point we had some person/group/company that was targeting android
and had the tests running. That seems like a big hole in what we
test....being the most widely used computing platform and all. Not sure
what would be needed to get that going again.
