According to my colleague Alex Graf at SUSE, you can definitely build
ARMv7 on arm64 using chroots. The only problem with chroots is that
"uname -a" shows "armv8" which some userspace applications are stumbling

openSUSE/SLE builds armv7 packages in OBS/IBS using a fully emulated system
using KVM.

As for the hardware, you should watch out for hardware with ARM Cortex Cores.
Alternatively, X-Gene 1. ThunderX, ThunderX2 and Centriq are definitely not
