A prebuilt busybox isn't currently available, but we could publish one.  Is 
there a central location for the qemu community to get these?  Or is it 
expected that each target has their own?

Note that this series implements a subset of the instructions.  I plan to 
submit the others once this series is accepted.  So, I wouldn't be surprised if 
busybox doesn't work with this series.  I know that it works with the full set 
of instructions implemented at https://github.com/quic/qemu.  In fact, we 
demo'ed it during our talk at the 2019 KVM Forum

All of the SDK examples run on our RTOS, not linux-user.  I could convert some 
of them to work in linux-user mode.  Would tests/tcg/hexagon be the right place 
for these?

In addition to busybox, we could build other open source packages.  Would that 
be of interest?
