QEMU ports have the advantage that they're easier to hook up into boot test
They're also much less meaningful (it's typically rather easy to spin up
qemu) but they provide a base line.

So for all I care, "port coreboot to QEMU/$anything" would be an
interesting and helpful set of projects that students could decide to
propose as theirs.
It also avoids the hassle of getting hardware and tools to the students,
which created some unfortunate delays in the past. GSoC has some hard
deadlines, so this is something to keep in mind.
