Suggestions for kernel bugs that can be fixed with QEMU, w/o actual hardware?

I think most kernel things from the bug list could be fixed with an
emulator, if we had one. I would risk saying that they are easier to
fix this way than with hardware.

Yes, it's the same system afaik.  It's the same building process
except MokoMakefile is more radical about automating it, and has a
form of a Makefile.

With the exception of the kernel and bootloader, what can be loaded in
QEMU is what can be loaded on a GTA02.
