[Qemu-devel] [PATCH] null-machine: Add support for the "-kernel" paramet

From: Thomas Huth
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH] null-machine: Add support for the "-kernel" parameter
Date: Wed, 25 Jan 2017 09:40:58 +0100

We can have basic support for the "-kernel" parameter quite easily
by using the generic loader device. This should be enough for most
boards which do not need special machine-specific magic for loading
a kernel (and for those that need special magic, the generic "none"
machine is likely not suitable for using it as an instruction set
simulator board anyway).

Signed-off-by: Thomas Huth <address@hidden>
 PS: If we can't agree on using the generic loader here, I can also
     prepare a patch instead that simply prints out an error message
     if the user tried to use the "-kernel" parameter.
