QEMU, on armv7

Please check the previous mail from Sumit. It explains exaclty what's going on.
The tl;dr version is that the storage is up only when the supplicant is running.

Thanks, 
The hardware i am waiting for for has an eMMC RPMB. In theory the U-Boot
supplicant support will be there so i'll be able to test it.

Thanks
