[Qemu-devel] SPARC docs

Yesterday, SUN released the code for OpenSparc (http://opensparc.sunsource.net/)

 Part of the release includes their full system simulator (SAM) and
proms. The proms are only included in binary form, but SAM can be recompiled. I hope that this information is useful to solve/enhance the problems that we have with sparc64.

The SAM simulator and the documentation is mostly for sun4v. Since Linux already boots on sun4v, maybe adding support for SPARC/sun4v to qemu is easier than sparcV9/sun4u.

Seems like Linus is going to add the Niagara patch on 2.6.17. Meanwhile, we can obtain
information from the Dave Miller branch:

git clone rsync://rsync.kernel.org:/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/davem/sparc-2.6.git linux-2.6

There are enough bad moments for not enjoying the good ones.
