I already have an user-mode PPC emulation, with no float able to launch
static PPC binaries. I have no supervisor mode nor 64 bit PPC support,
for now, and I only emulate the generic 32 bits PPC, according to the
specification. I need to resync with latest architectural changes
and it would be great that if I could fix dynamic binaries loading,
which used to work, some times ago, then I will be able to send my (big)
patch to Fabrice. If you'd like to help me and have some notions about
IEEE floats, maybe you could make some generic helpers for float ops
emulation ? This would be great !
Another thing to do is to point differences between common PPC chips and
the spec, so qemu would be able to emulate "real" PPC chips. I think PPC
603 and G3 would be a good start.
