This is adding a new PPC board called pegasos2. More info on it can be
found at:


Currently it needs a firmware ROM image that I cannot include due to
original copyright holder (bPlan) did not release it under a free
licence but I have plans to write a replacement in the future. With
the original board firmware it can boot MorphOS now as:

qemu-system-ppc -M pegasos2 -cdrom morphos.iso -device ati-vga,romfile="" 
-serial stdio

then enter "boot cd boot.img" at the firmware "ok" prompt as described
in the MorphOS.readme. To boot Linux use same command line with e.g.
-cdrom debian-8.11.0-powerpc-netinst.iso then enter
"boot cd install/pegasos"

The last patch adds the actual board code after previous patches
adding VT8231 and MV64361 system controller chip emulation.

I've applied 1..5 to a new ppc-for-6.1 branch.  Sorry it didn't make
it for 6.0, I just didn't have time to look this over until too late.

Thanks but maybe you should wait if the dropped original first patch can be reviewed now and brought back. It would be easier for me to resubmit whole series rebased than port the dropped patch on top of a partly applied series. Also first patches without the last two is not much useful as the vt8231 model these add would not be used by anything else.
