Sure. I have two free cloud VMs which I will use for the alpha buildds. We're
already using qemu for builds in Debian.

For m68k and sh4, we're using qemu-user which helped discovering a lot of bugs,
especially with qemu-user. Currently, we can't use qemu-system on m68k and sh4
since the system memory is limited there to 1 GiB and 64 MiB, although the latter
is a limitation by qemu as far as I know.

For riscv64, most buildds in Debian and build workers in openSUSE are based on
qemu-system as cheap riscv64 hardware is still very hard to come by.
