Exactly i have the same on Qoriq too.

I will try your same command line and see what will exit on me.
I cant use qemu on 17.04 host because there is no more support for PPC32, PPC64 dead line is 16.10 and last working version
of qemu on PPC is 2.6.1 i dint try 2.9 there if needed i can do i have ubuntu mate 17.04 installed too.
>Did we introduce a regression in compatibility in QEMU 2.9 ? or
Im facing many issue on this last update im try to help how i can before all come upstream.
i like really much qemu. i can help in testing on PPC64 Be if need with my hw.
