I suppose I could, but actually I wasn't asking for the two qemu
patches to be merged. Instead I was posting "here's something that
provides minimal function for me, hope you can use it too". For
instance, someone should track down pci memory so that ohci and/or
video works. Then test the isa ne2ks, or better yet get qemu to change
them to pci (except then it only works on the latest qemu).
I didn't put it under prep because it could be changed for the other
qemu platforms and doesn't use any thing that makes the machine prep
other than some memory map information. I kept prep because I didn't
want to deal with io to the scc on b&w G3, the other long-term platform
(or with hackware to see if that would just boot as pmac).
