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).
