That's right, but I thought we also had Raspbian working after Peter C's 
implementation of SETEND. (I wouldn't be surprised if it had regressed, 

I've dropped the ball on this, and don't forsee finding time for it in the 
immediate future, but if anyone wants to work on it there are still some 
outstanding bits of emulation lurking in my github tree (github.com/0xabu/qemu) 
mostly from the original implementation by Gregory Estrade: pi1 model, system 
timers, stub power management control, and USB controller. The last one (USB) 
is essential to having a usable device, but also sadly dubious in terms of code 
quality and completeness.
