I smoketest on qemu-system-sh4 first just because it's so convenient, then test
on my j-core (sh2+) turtle board because it's the next most convenient thing
(it's USB powered and one lives in my backpack).

I'm in a similar position: I can put more cycles into this (and I've collected
patch stacks for Rich before), but I don't have the domain expertise to make
judgement calls about device tree representation, interrupt routing, nontrivial
lock ordering, knowing when you need a memory barrier and why...

(Also, I've been running up to 3 days behind on my email recently, and catching
up on weekends...)
