My target may be arm/mips.
but some of the common hurdles are following.

1) getting virtual machine which has capability gives me arm processor

2) getting the arm linux ISO. 

Can somebody give me some pointers regarding above ?

I think Hui has already done some work for Mips record/replay.
Maybe you and he could work together on that?

If you want to work on Arm, as far as I know, you would have
that field all to yourself.
