This is not a complete implementation yet with a lot of components
still missing but enough for the U-Boot firmware to start and to boot
a Linux kernel or AROS.

I'm not thrilled with having a machine type that can't be used without
extracting a bootloader image from somewhere, but from the other
thread that's not easy to fix.

This is not meant to be like that and I'd like to also submit the u-boot image once we figure out how to do it. Especially because the boot loader one can extract from the updater is buggy but here's a fixed binary that works here: http://zero.eik.bme.hu/~balaton/qemu/

U-Boot is GPL so we would need to include the source as well (the README in the link above contain the source URL and the patches needed are there as well). If there's no easy way to host it in the QEMU repo I could put it in my own git repo and submit a patch to use that as a submodule if that's acceptable. It seems there are some firmware images that reference external git repos already but not sure what's the preferred way.

Since we have dtc in a submodule, there's really no reason we should
be including .dtb files as well as .dts files, we should build them
ourselves.  But fixing that isn't really in scope for this patch.

I think there are already make rules to build a dtb from dts so it may be possible to build these if we can add them as a dependency somewhere. However a normal make does not build dtc for me from the submodule so I'm not sure it would work.

So, applied.

Thank you,
