A board has 4 nodes, but we are speaking on shareable machine with 48
nodes hosted by (potential) donator.
Highbank is Calxeda blade based on cortex A9, Midway has Cortex A15
(and extra RAM, ~8GB).
I cannot give more details, as soon as I heard back from Boston, they
warned it might take over 2 weeks, I'll come back with the options
they propose. It might take some time, however we do not urge on
getting armhf hardware.

I read on the thread backlog iceweasel ftbfs on sid... note it
builds on experimental, on a more recent version.
