[Qemu-devel] solaris x86 in qemu?

In order to verify some build issues on solaris, I tried to install
sol10 x86 in a kvm vm.  But unfortunately it does not work: after the
grub prompt and choosing "Solaris 10 x86" boot entry, the kernel
gets loaded (there's a row of dots displayed during that), next,
the following message gets displayed:

 SunOS Release 5.10 Version Generic_147148-26 64-bit
 Copyright (c) 1983, 2013 Oracle and/or its affiliates.  All rights reserved.

and the guest stays there for a long time, spinning up 100% of its CPU,
and nothing more happens.

The same happens when run with or without kvm (ie, tcg and kvm behaves
the same way).

When run in kvm, kvm_stats shows just a few exits (about 600/sec) and
nothing more than that.

Any idea what to do with that?

I think that supporting solaris as _guest_ OS is an important goal
for qemu/kvm (as opposed to _host_).
