i'd like to get the following simple patches to the MIPS/mipssim target adding
virtio-mmio devices to it.

Please submit your patches as a series so we can review them on
the list:

Oh thanks, i didn't know that; i've created a new patch with the OR gate you
suggested. We deliberated about the change here and we'll at least keep it
here locally for testing and profiling code until a real `virt' platform is
developed for MIPS. Until then it would IMHO be a good expansion to mipssim.
I'll try to get a proper patch posted on the list :)

What I forgot to mention is that QEMU aims to keep models the closer
to the hardware, so modifying MIPSsim to some Frankenstein is unlikely
to be accepted.

Well, mipssim never was a real hardware, in fact it is already some kind of "virt" machine. So you could theoretically also extend this machine instead of introducing a new one (but I'm not a MIPS guy, so no clue what makes more sense).
