I might be mis-parsing things, but why try to emulate when you have
real hardware?

The farm has GCC112 and GCC119, which are POWER8. GCC112 is Linux
(little-endian), and GCC119 is AIX (big-endian). There are some POWER7
machines also but I don't usually use them.

The farm also has GCC117 and GCC118. The are Aarch64 machines with
ARMv8.1, and they have the crypto extensions. There are some Mustang
boards that are AArch64, but they lack the crypto extensions.
