You appear to be trying to run a kernel for an Integrator board
on a versatilepb model. This won't work -- you must run a
kernel configured for the board model you're using.

You're also trying to send the guest's serial output to the
host serial port. Are you sure you want to do that? Sending
it to stdout or to a TCP port is more usual.

This isn't an error. It is just QEMU telling you that the guest OS
has not yet done what it needs to do to turn on the emulated graphics
card and display output.

In this case the likely reason for this is that you've tried to
run a kernel that won't work on this board model, and so it has
crashed before it got anywhere. You can also see this message
if the kernel has no graphics support built in and is just doing
output to serial console.
