There was or is bug in qemu-user-static, that made it terribly slow. This version:

$> ./qemu-arm-static --version
qemu-arm version 2.9.1(qemu-2.9.1-2.fc26)

is definitely ok, I haven't tested any newer ones. In my opinion most builds should not fail due time limit on travis. BUT the tests sometimes do, after all its not the correct kernel. I am moving towards qemu-system using netboot for my development. netboot boots surprisingly consistent across architectures. You can append apkovl= to provision the VM.
