To be clear, Simon also has a number of physical boards in a CI lab.
Perhaps part of the confusion here is that we're thinking of these tests
as something more special than what we have already, but I don't think
that's the case. It's just shifting the logic around a little bit in
that today we have "build u-boot, flash u-boot, ensure that version is
now running" and this is "build u-boot, update u-boot, ensure that
version is now running".
