For that it is worth I'll post my notes here. Maybe they're usefull in any way:

#! /bin/sh

# libfdt is required

# From: Alexander Graf
# There are 2 branches. One is my ppc-next queue, with patches that are soon to 
be applied to master:
#   git://repo.or.cz/qemu/agraf.git ppc-next
# and the other one is an experimental AIX dump ground:
#   git://repo.or.cz/qemu/agraf.git aix
# where I try to gather all the hacks people have been doing to get AIX that 
tiny bit further. It's nowhere close to actually working though.

# $ git clone git://repo.or.cz/qemu/agraf.git # # $ git checkout 
origin/ppc-next # - or - # $ git checkout origin/aix

echo open firmware:
echo setenv load-base 16384
echo boot cdrom:\ppc\chrp\bootfile.exe  -s verbose
