This is new patch.
Nice work -- looks a lot closer! :)
I've a few questions, though.
I notice that the 82078 has 'PC AT', 'PS/2' and 'PS/2 Model 30'
QEMU doesn't seem to implement this, but I don't know common each
different modes is/was.
Also, I notice that in fdctrl_write_dor(), the DR0 bit (in PS/2 mode)
is set if drives 0 or 2 are selected, which looks like a bug -- I
expect that it should only be set if drive 0 is selected.
AFAIK, in most IBM PC 'clones' (but not quite all), the FDC can
four drives, but only up to one/two drives can be physically
It seems that MAX_FD affects emulation of the FDC itself, and doesn't
just determine the number of drives that may be connected. Surely
can't be right? I.e. if MAX_FD == 2, any attempt to select drive 2
results in drive 0 being selected, which should not be the case...
I'm not sure why QEMU limits certain machines to two drives... Maybe
the reason is that software for systems where only two drives can be
physically connected might react badly to seeing unexpected drives.
Is this the case? TBH, I'm not sure whether I *really* need more
a single drive... :)
Also, it seems to me that a floppy controller might have either one,
two, three, four or no drives attached. (I assume that software can
distinguish between a missing drive and a drive with no disk
In that case, it seems to me that QEMU cannot provide emulation of a
system with no drives connected to its FDC.
