FYI: I've had a chat with Alexander Graf this morning in IRC, and the
qemu-system-ppcemb was indeed only created for supporting the CPUs with
page sizes < 4k. Everything else is supposed to work with
qemu-system-ppc, too. Since likely nobody is using page sizes < 4k on
embedded PPCs nowadays anymore (and Alex was also only aware of one
home-brew OS that did this in the past is likely not available now
anymore), I think we can go forward and start the deprecation of ppcemb.
