I haven't checked what they provide, but one critical requirement is that
they have (or we add) enough ram to run Linux -- it's theoretically
possible to run in a few MB but >128MB is a good idea (>1GB preferred)
since then that's enough we might be able to run some simple JIT
compilation tasks as needed for the Vulkan driver.
