[Qemu-devel] PowerPC 970/G5 suggestion/request

I'd like to know what the maintainers et al would think of having the 970 as a different cpu like the Sparc and i386's.

I ask this because it really does make a huge, measurable difference if or not code is targeted to that cpu. Apple has several documents on this, and what assembler instructions should be used, changed or avoided altogether, as well as notes on why stuff really needs to be aligned "correctly" so as not to waste huge amounts of cycles.

Is this feasible? Can the code generators/re-compiler in qemu be modified without too much pain to generate code closer to Apple's recommendations at http://developer.apple.com/technotes/tn/tn2087.html

Thanks in advance for any thoughts on this,
