I did some tests using QEmu (and some other PPC emulators). I believe
QEmu would be the best choice but this should be evaluated more. I only
tried to run the boot manager of AmigaOS 4 but AmigaONE uses hardware
that is not supported by QEmu out-of-the-box. But the changes should be
not that large and difficult to implement. QEmue has a nice architecture
that allows to introduce new hardware emulation easily.

Kind regards,
