porting reversible on arm/mips

I am not sure whether I got the term 'arm simulator built in gdb"
can you give some more pointers ?

If I understand correctly,

there is no need for simulators, 
compile gdb with some options, on x86, that will simulate arm gdb with some basic arm environment!
and I can try to finish architecture part first.

Can you please elaborate ?

There's a nice separation in prec between architecture and
OS/ABI.  You could begin with the arm simulator that comes
built-in to gdb, and do the architecture part before
tackling the Linux ABI part.
