Mainline, with:

qemu-system-sparc -M SS-4 -kernel arch/sparc/boot/zImage -no-reboot \
	-snapshot -drive file=rootfs.ext2,format=raw,if=scsi \
	-append "panic=-1 slub_debug=FZPUA root=/dev/sda console=ttyS0"
	-nographic -monitor none

The machine doesn't really matter, though. The root file system is built
with buildroot.

Note that I carry two reverts in my qemu images.

Revert "tcx: switch to load_image_mr() and remove prom_addr hack"
Revert "cg3: switch to load_image_mr() and remove prom-addr hack"

I have been carrying those since ~2017. I didn't check recently
if they are still needed.

If sparc32 is no longer supported in the upstream kernel,
would it possibly make sense remove its support ?
