[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v4 0/6] m68k: Add basic support for the NeXTcube mac

From: Thomas Huth
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v4 0/6] m68k: Add basic support for the NeXTcube machine
Date: Tue, 9 Jul 2019 09:32:16 +0200

During Google Summer of Code 2011, Bryce Lanham added the possibility to
emulate the NeXTcube machine in QEMU, e.g. see these URLs for some details:


But since the machine requires a 68040 CPU and this was not included in
upstream QEMU in 2011 yet, the patches have never been merged to upstream.

Then, during the last years, Laurent completed the full 680x0 support in
upstream QEMU, so we could finally merge the NeXTcube support, too.

The QEMU interfaces changed a lot since 2011, so I had to modify the
sources quite a bit, but with the attached patches, it is now possible
to boot up to the firmware monitor again.

Note that boot device emulation is still missing (network and SCSI),
so you can not boot any operating systems with this machine yet. I have
the patches for these devices in my brach here:


... but they are not quite working yet, so I'll submit them later once
they have been fixed and the basic support patches of this series have
been merged.

 - Fixed the "bmap" memory region with its alias - the error messages
   about wrong DIMMs should now be gone.
 - Managed to wired up the ESCC serial device (after including Laurent's
   "bit_swap" patch)

 - Don't connect the devices to the sysbus from the device files themselves,
   do it from next-cube.c instead.
 - Adjusted some values according to Philippe's review comments
 - The MMIO region at 0x820c0020 is now correctly initialized as alias
 - Some more clean-ups here and there

 - Don't use memory_region_allocate_system_memory() for the framebuffer
   device anymore
 - Turn the keyboard device into a proper QOM device
 - Put the global variables in the third patch into the machine state
 - Got rid of the "//" C++ comments
