|Alpha emulation structure:
|cpu.h : CPU definitions globally exported
|exec.h : CPU definitions used only for translated code execution
|helper.c : helpers that can be called either by the translated code
| or the QEMU core, including the exception handler.
|op_helper.c : helpers that can be called only from TCG
|helper.h : TCG helpers prototypes
|translate.c : Alpha instructions to micro-operations translator
|Code translator status:
|The Alpha CPU instruction emulation should be quite complete with the
|limitation that the VAX floating-point load and stores are not tested.
|The 4 MMU modes are implemented.
|Linux user mode emulation status:
|a few programs start to run. Most crash at a certain point, dereferencing a
|NULL pointer. It seems that the UNIQUE register is not initialized properly.
|It may appear that old executables, not relying on TLS support, run but
|this is to be proved...
|Full system emulation status:
|* Alpha PALCode emulation is in a very early stage and is not sufficient
| to run any real OS. The alpha-softmmu target is not enabled for now.
|* no hardware platform description is implemented
|* there might be problems in the Alpha PALCode dedicated instructions
| that would prevent to use a native PALCode image.
