Today I can finally confirm that the patch does work okay on OSX 10.3.9
(Panther?) with qemu source from CVS HEAD..  Or, at least, when I follow all
of the directions on the page, I can boot qemu with RH9 Linux guest, and:

- sshing from the host into the guest works.
- pinging the guest's gateway from the guest works.
- pinging the host's real IP address from the guest works.
- pinging anything outside of the host didn't work, but I haven't spent much
  time yet trying to figure out why.
- DNS inside the guest didn't seem to work either.. but that's likely related
  to the previous item.

I believe the remaining problems are routing problems that are caused by some
failures in the ifup.sh script that comes with the OSX tun/tap driver.  And,
since the machine I tried this on isn't mine, I don't really have the 
to try all kinds of other stuff, nor dig into what's wrong with the ifup.sh
script, but the co-worker of mine whose laptop it is said he'll see what he
can figure out.

So, I think at least the qemu patch works as written.  Can we commit that?

Here is a patch


it adds tun/tap support to osx.


I don't own a macosx machine, but others around me do, and they want to run
qemu.  The above patch comes from this page:



It still applies cleanly to qemu source in CVS HEAD.  If it actually works,
can't you commit this patch?
