Good. Thanks.

I didn't bother implementing the "Bus matrix", memory controller and
the other components needed for the Flash. Since you already
implemented them, having them as QDEV-based code would allow sharing
the code between the at91sam7x and at91sam9263 boards. The interface
is virtually identical on both of these system controllers.

Firstly, I didn't update it for more than two months, so the patches
no longer apply cleanly to mainline. The QDEV interface has changed a
bit since then, but now it is more or less stable. This is something I
am planning to fix soon. Secondly, only few people were interested in
the patches (or AT91 implementation in general) and QEMU maintainers
were busy with other things, so there was no one to review them and
commit them. If we can produce a set of patches and mutually review
them then there's a bigger chance of getting some of them into the
QEMU mainline.

Best regards,
