My experience is that Qemu's support of a MIPS target isn't bad, 
although what I've done so far has been cross-hosted which was certainly 
good enough for compilation of e.g. the compiler in isolation.

Didn't somebody already have loan hardware for this?

I'd certainly be happy to continue chugging away at testing once the 
assembler reader issue was sorted out- at least until the next 
insurmountable problem :-)
