That would be great! I intend to run them under qemu-system-arm and
supply latest kernel through -kernel option, so kernel itself is not
that critical. Same for bpftool, pahole, etc, I'll just supply them
from my host environment. So please let me know how I can get ahold of
those. Sample qemu invocation command line would be highly appreciated
as well. Thank you!

I think that shouldn't be a problem and should be handled
transparently, even in a cross-compilation case, but let's see.

Any way you like and can. Dropbox, Google drive, what have you.
