Just a thought,

Has anybody tinkered with porting qemu to something like a TI TMS320C6X DSP host. The idea would be to be able to easily port LINUX and other open source software to such a DSP. Embeded products could use the DSP's power natively to crunch at video codecs and such while an emulated target would leverage the power of LINUX to craft servers, user interfaces, you name it. Currently this is usually done with dual physical cores, a RISC type engine for the high level stuff and the DSP for the brutal crunching. With qemu, the RISC could posibly be virtual thus saving board space and cost. Additionally it would be interesting to see performance figures for qemu emulating an x86 architecture on a VLIW machine. A kind of open sourced transmetta chip.
