I'm going to start off a branch specifically to do BVT on  simulator and devCloud so that
we can at least have system vms/vrs and business logic tested. 

Specific hardware will be different but should be a much smaller part of our code base.  Also
I believe specific hardware code can be broken but mostly won't affect others.  Here the main
concern is changes impacting the developer community at large.

I'm perfectly fine with driving the BVT side of things but like I said, I don't think I can
do the infra side of things.  Someone else needs to take that over.
