Haiku OpenJDK - the road ahead

I was at FOSDEM this year and attended two interesting conferences, the 
subject of which could probably help speed up the Haiku OpenJDK port 
quite a bit. I was wondering how others saw it on the project.
I don't yet have the time to look into it, but hopefully later.

- first one was about cross compiling OpenJDK to embedded ARM targets, 
cf. the docs at
while it use some linux-specific crossbuilding scripts it could likely 
help us.

- other one was Caciocavallo which provides a much simpler way to write 
native AWT backends, and a progressive way of doing it (first 
framebuffer like, then use native canvas but draw from Swing, then 
eventually the fullblown AWT):

Thoughts ?
