        Description

        It is possible to efficiently cross-compile to foreign architectures on current GH actions that are driven by Ubuntu: https://github.com/openjdk/jdk/blob/master/doc/building.md#creating-and-using-sysroots-with-qemu-deboostrap

        I have been using this method for years to produce binaries at builds.shipilev.net. Those cross-compilation targets frequently find arch-specific build bugs.

        This issue explores whether current submit workflow can be amended to build {aarch64, arm32, ppc64, s390x} JDKs for extra safety net.
