Sorry, the patch breaks compilation for ppc-softmmu:
target-ppc/translate_init.c:877:13: error: ‘gen_spr_vtb’ defined but
not used [-Werror=unused-function]
Please move the definition of gen_spr_vtb to the other p8 related spr
registration functions so it only gets added when we compile for 64bit.
I've removed the patch from my queue again.
