  [Feature request] ia64-softmmu wanted

Status in HelenOS branches:
Status in QEMU:

Bug description:
  Qemu is missing support for full system emulation of the Itanium
  architecture, which is one of the main non-x86 server architectures
  today (despite the alleged decline in popularity). It would be really
  nice if someone had interest in adding full ia64 support to Qemu. Many
  OS projects could then use Qemu as the universal machine emulator for
  development and testing.

  Note that there is an open source Ski simulator which can emulate an
  ia64 CPU, memory and a couple of Ski-specific devices, but the project
  seems inactive and the simulated machine is too simplified (no real
  devices, no real firmware). Moreover, it'd be better to have one tool
  such as Qemu for all architectures of interest rather than one per
  each architecture.
