Which brings up the question of dyngen. Very clever and a very good way
of bootstrapping QEMU in the early days, but too brittle going forwards
now the rest of QEMU works so well.

You had an alternative approach to dyngen, pointed at here:

Any thoughts about the future of hand-coded backends in QEMU? I wasn't
convinced at first (and, given resources, it isn't nearly as good as a
special-purpose language for describing CPUs at this level) but I now
think your work is a very good solution for bootstrapping QEMU to the
next level of users.
