I'm afraid QEMU doesn't support mapping the flash device to
address zero on this board. Address zero is always RAM, and
since your command line doesn't put anything into the RAM
we will just execute the zero bytes (which happen to be NOP
instructions) until we run off the end of RAM.

If you want to run a bare metal program on this board you
need to link it into an ELF file that's located at address
zero and then use -kernel myimage.elf to load it into the

For me this fails at R15=0800000, but I think the
cause is the same.
