Before you can fix that you probably need to fix the bits of qemu (TLB code)
that store a host pointer in a phys_addr_t. Or at least distance
TARGET_PHYS_ADDR_BITS from the definition of phys_addr_t, and include
In that case TARGET_PHYS_ADDR_BITS could be a precise value, rather than the
next multiple of 32. e.g. I think sparc32 has a 40-bit physical address
