The patch currently supports only x86 Linux host and requires that you are able 
to build working Qemu-fast. These limitations can be relaxed in the future. 
Also building qemu-fast may not be easy with some distributions. If you need 
assistance please post details of your environment -- hopefully somebody will 
be able to help.

You may need to download Qemu source and test Linux image:

Then create a build directory and run:
  > tar -zxf _PATH_TO_qemu-0.6.0.tar.gz
  > tar -zxf _PATH_TO_linux-test-0.5.1.tar.gz
  > cd qemu-0.6.0
  > ./configure --target-list=i386
  > make

Test qemu-fast:
  > ./i386/qemu-fast -L pc-bios -hda ../linux-test/linux.img

Then build patched version:
  > patch -p1 < _PATH_TO_fast-map-env-2.patch
  > make clean
  > make

Test patched Qemu-fast:
  > ./i386/qemu-fast -no-code-copy -L pc-bios -hda ../linux-test/linux.img

Notice that the patch is very experimental,
