Any idea of when qemu-system-arm will be supported for https://github.com/Intel-BMC/openbmc ?

It depends on what you want from qemu.
For example, I use qemu to check that the firmware image is bootable and works
qemu-system-arm -M ast2500-evb -m size=512M \
-nographic -nodefaults -serial mon:stdio \
-net nic,model=ftgmac100 \
This way has some failures:
- There is emulated MTD falsh drive only 32M size. As a result fit-image-b and
u-boot-env partitions are unreadable.
- There is no managed host. So there are not work the host power state
management, KVM, Virtual Media and so on.
Probably there are more failures, which I have not noticed.
While writing these lines I remembered that I use qemu-system-arm, built from
source on https://github.com/openbmc/qemu.
It's important, because the qemu-system-arm from my distro is too old and this
image is not working with it.
