Hi Andrew,
Very interesting, I was thinking about the same, for testing arm64
versions. I have some experience with qemu, although I mostly use
It is quite possible to use UEFI boot with qemu.
I presume the emulated arm64 machine is good enough for compilations,
for actually testing CinGG you probably need more?? 

A problem might be missing build utilities, I know a programmer who
(for fun) wanted to build a CinGG for macOS had problems there.
