The QEMU x86 CPU emulator version 0.4 is available at http://bellard.org/qemu. QEMU can now launch an unpatched(*) Linux kernel and give correct execution performances by using dynamic compilation.

QEMU requires no host kernel patches and no special priviledge in order to run a Linux kernel. QEMU simulates a serial console and a NE2000 network adapter. X11 applications such as xterm have been launched.

QEMU can be used for example for faster kernel testing/debuging and virtual hosting.

Wow, this is very very cool! Has the hosting been testing on anything
else than x86?

[I made a private reply but it may interest other people!]

Currently vl only supports x86 as host, but nothing would prevent it from supporting other hosts provided the host page size is 4 KB. Some small patches are needed for precise timer support (rdtsc) and to fix endianness issues in the kernel parameters.
