FWIW if you're running a more recent version of QEMU (>=3.1) then you can also boot
from the virtio-blk-pci device directly instead of having to switch back to the IDE
device after installation as you have done above. Should be something like:

qemu-system-sparc64 \
         -m 4096 \
   	-device virtio-blk-pci,bus=pciB,drive=hd \
 	-drive
file=/home/brauner/.local/share/qemu/sparc64.img,format=raw,if=none,id=hd,bootindex=0 \
        -net nic \
 	-net user \
 	-nographic

Note the removal of the legacy -boot argument and the addition of "bootindex=0" to
the -drive argument.


ATB,
