Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH 2/5] configure: Don't allow user-only targets for unknown CPU architectures
Date: Tue, 14 Jun 2016 10:52:04 +0100

For the user-only targets, we need to know something about the host CPU
architecture even if we are using the TCI interpreter rather than TCG.
(In particular user-exec.c has code for handling signals that needs
to know about that host's context structures.)

Specifically forbid building the user-only targets on unknown CPU
architectures, rather than allowing them to configure but then fail
when building user-exec.c.

This change drops supports for two configurations which were theoretically
possible before:
 * linux-user targets on M68K hosts using TCI
 * linux-user targets on HPPA hosts using TCI

We don't think anybody is actually trying to use these in practice, though:
 * interpreted TCG on a slow host CPU would be unusably slow
 * the m68k user-exec.c support is missing is_write detection so guest
   code which writes to the same page it is executing from was broken
   (will include any guest program using signals)
 * HPPA TCG backend support was dropped two and a half years ago
   with no complaints
