No, emulating the chipset is hard stuff, depending on what the software tries to accomplish with the chipset, it can take a lot of resources. Unlike CPU usage that is quite predictable.

ARm is nice for all the stupid work, like reading/writing sd-cards, usb sticks etc. Gives you nice Ethernet ...

But the FPGA should do the CPU emulation and all the special chips ...
The question should be - is it the FPGA or the ARM CPU that has direct access to the DDR3 RAM? There is where the CPU should ideally be.
