Please disregard the Solaris bit as the 1.4.0 version of KQEMU is not
widely available there yet, so you can't use the SVN version of QEMU
with KQEMU anyway AFAIK.  I'd be glad to look at this in the (somewhat
distant) future and come up with a patch if anonymous memory on
Solaris is not stable.

OpenSolaris.org has a kqemu version that I've been happily using there with SVN. It supposedly supports Solaris 9 and 8, so by inference 10 as well, I'd hope.

Last time I heard it wasn't merged upstream, so it would be good to check how well the Solaris (and FreeBSD?) kqemu variants work with this series. Maybe merge into the current codebase before making too much assumptions for the new accel interface?
