OK, here are my findings.
I tried qemu-arm from qemu 0.5.5 and from all daily qemu CVS snapshots
between 20040504 and 20040901. Of those, there are actually only 16
different qemu-arm binaries (with a distinct md5 sum), so I only used
I tried the Fedora Core 2 kernels 2.6.5-1.358 (original), 2.6.6-1.427,
2.6.6-1.435, 2.6.6-1.435.2.1, 2.6.6-1.435.2.3, 2.6.7-1.494.2.2 and
2.6.8-1.521 (the latest.)
On all kernels, you get a sig11 if you run without 'setarch i686'.
If you run with 'setarch i686', kernel 2.6.6-1.435.2.3 still runs
everything fine, but 2.6.7-1.494.2.2 breaks all qemu versions except
for the 20040519 CVS snapshot. And on the kernel after that,
2.6.8-1.521, all qemu versions are broken. If I then try to set
vm.legacy_vm_layout to 1, 20040519 starts working again, but all
other snapshots before and after remain broken.
