2012-01-11target-i386: fix {min,max}{pd,ps,sd,ss} SSE2 instructionsAurelien Jarno
minpd, minps, minsd, minss and maxpd, maxps, maxsd, maxss SSE2 instructions have been broken when switching target-i386 to softfloat. It's not possible to use comparison instructions on float types anymore to softfloat, so use the floatXX_lt function instead, as the float_XX_min and float_XX_max functions can't be used due to the Intel specific behaviour. As it implements the correct NaNs behaviour, let's remove the corresponding entry from the TODO. It fixes GDM screen display on Debian Lenny. Thanks to Peter Maydell and Jason Wessel for their analysis of the problem. Signed-off-by: Aurelien Jarno <aurelien@aurel32.net>
2009-08-24Unbreak large mem support by removing kqemuAnthony Liguori
kqemu introduces a number of restrictions on the i386 target. The worst is that it prevents large memory from working in the default build. Furthermore, kqemu is fundamentally flawed in a number of ways. It relies on the TSC as a time source which will not be reliable on a multiple processor system in userspace. Since most modern processors are multicore, this severely limits the utility of kqemu. kvm is a viable alternative for people looking to accelerate qemu and has the benefit of being supported by the upstream Linux kernel. If someone can implement work arounds to remove the restrictions introduced by kqemu, I'm happy to avoid and/or revert this patch. N.B. kqemu will still function in the 0.11 series but this patch removes it from the 0.12 series. Paul, please Ack or Nack this patch. Signed-off-by: Anthony Liguori <aliguori@us.ibm.com>
