Explanation and use of QEMU user mode on FreeBSD in tandem with binmiscctl tools to create and manipulate arbitrary hardware architecture jails on AMD64/i386. Detailed setup of tools and use for creating and maintaining ports packages, initial prototype of disk images and testing of concepts on architectures without having real hardware in play.
Examples of MIPS and ARM execution for the crowd and demonstration of setup and configuration on AMD64 hardware. Display use of poudriere to build PKG style repos for these architectures.
Simple how with regards to rapid prototyping of compressed flash images to assist in the propagation of FreeBSD on other platforms.
