Until then, the QEMU support will have some documentation on the 
hcalls and on the device tree.

I am still struggling with CAS on QEMU. POWER9 supports both the 
legacy XICS model and the newer one, XIVE, and we can switch from 
one another depending on the guest kernel. This is a serious 
headache for the model as the ICS/ICP objects are chosen after 
the guest has booted. 

That will be a topic for some discussion on the qemu-ppc mailing 
list. Hopefully soon.
