Qemu-system-ppc built from current master can no longer run Fedora 12 ppc
as guest. (This the only ppc distro I tested.) Host is Fedora 34. Please
see screen shot attached.
Booting from both an installation DVD and from an installed system fail.

To reproduce:
compile qemu-system-ppc from current master and run:

./qemu-system-ppc \
-M mac99,via=pmu \
-m 1024 \
-L pc-bios \
-boot d \
-cdrom Fedora-12-ppc-DVD.iso \
-g 1024x768x8

I tracked the issue down to this commit:

8f0a4b6a9b40e18116a2bb6bbcc00feb8119c792 is the first bad commit
commit 8f0a4b6a9b40e18116a2bb6bbcc00feb8119c792

There's a fix for a similar problem I've seen with AROS and pegasos2 firmware 1.2 that's in today's pull request:


That should likely fixes this. Can you try with that (either once it's merged or from David's for-6.1 branch).

   target/ppc: Move cmp/cmpi/cmpl/cmpli to decodetree

   Additionally, REQUIRE_64BIT when L=1 to match what is specified in The
   Programming Environments Manual:

   "For 32-bit implementations, the L field must be cleared, otherwise the
   instruction form is invalid."

   Some CPUs are known to deviate from this specification by ignoring the
   L bit [1]. The stricter behavior, however, can help users that test
   software with qemu, making it more likely to detect bugs that would
   otherwise be silent.

   If deemed necessary, a future patch can adapt this behavior based on
   the specific CPU model.

   [1] The 601 manual is the only one I've found that explicitly states
   that the L bit is ignored, but we also observe this behavior in a 7447A
