Basically,Qemu is similar to skyeye. I tried Qemu with RTEMS for ARM years
ago. However, the qemu version I used is from neo1973, also known as
openmoko projects.

You can change qemu code and configuration and force it load elf/bin file.
Or, use uboot to load rtems from qemu. It is practical.

There seems to be some activities in qemu to support more arm and cortex
CPU. But you will have to check the BSP you want to run is the CPU qemu
