Hi All,

The RC1 of kernel 5.13 doesn't boot in a virtual e5500 QEMU machine with 
KVM HV anymore. I see in the serial console that the uImage doesn't 
load. I use the following QEMU command for booting:

qemu-system-ppc64 -M ppce500 -cpu e5500 -enable-kvm -m 1024 -kernel 
uImage-5.13 -drive format=raw,file=MintPPC32-X5000.img,index=0,if=virtio 
-netdev user,id=mynet0 -device e1000,netdev=mynet0 -append "rw 
root=/dev/vda" -device virtio-vga -device virtio-mouse-pci -device 
virtio-keyboard-pci -device pci-ohci,id=newusb -device 
usb-audio,bus=newusb.0 -smp 4

The kernel boots without KVM HV.

Have you already tested KVM HV with the kernel 5.13?
