Sounds like you have a workable plan.  Thank you.  The test team will run
off of (branch:aspeed) until the
openbmc/qemu gets the needed updates.

Sounds about right.

Cedric's outlined the differences between his github repo and
openbmc/qemu, but I wouldn't have thought the differences would account
for this. Have you confirmed you're running the right qemu-system-arm

I believe I tested the networking before pushing Cedric's changes to
openbmc/qemu around 3 weeks ago, but I could be mistaken. Having said
that, as Cedric outlined, there may be some broken behaviour due to
fixes for ASPEED's movement of the EDO[RT]R bits in the MAC, so we
should resolve any issues as soon as possible.

Unfortunately I haven't kept pace with Cedric's work as I've been
distracted with other problems, but I intend on making up what ground I
can after I send my kernel patches upstream.
