20051126	Cobalt and PReP now work with the 21143 NIC.
		Continuing on Alpha dyntrans things.
		Fixing some more left-shift-by-24 to unsigned.
20051127	Working on OpenFirmware emulation; major cleanup/redesign.
		Progress on MacPPC emulation: NetBSD detects two CPUs (when
		running with -n 2), framebuffer output (for text) works.
		Adding quick-hack Bandit PCI controller and "gc" interrupt
		controller for MacPPC.
20051128	Changing from a Bandit to a Uni-North controller for macppc.
		Continuing on OpenFirmware and MacPPC emulation in general
		(obio controller, and wdc attached to the obio seems to work).
20051129	More work on MacPPC emulation (adding a dummy ADB controller).
		Continuing the PCI bus cleanup (endianness and tag composition)
		and rewriting all PCI controllers' access functions.
20051130	Various minor PPC dyntrans optimizations.
		Manually inlining some parts of the framebuffer redraw routine.
		Slowly beginning the conversion of the old MIPS emulation into
		dyntrans (but this will take quite some time to get right).
		Generalizing quick_pc_to_pointers.
20051201	Documentation update (David Muse has made available a kernel
		which simplifies Debian/DECstation installation).
		Continuing on the ADB bus controller.
20051202	Beginning a rewrite of the Zilog serial controller (dev_zs).
20051203	Continuing on the zs rewrite (now called dev_z8530); conversion
		to devinit style.
		Reworking some of the input-only vs output-only vs input-output
		details of src/console.c, better warning messages, and adding
		a debug dump.
		Removing the concept of "device state"; it wasn't really used.
		Changing some debug output (-vv should now be used to show all
		details about devices and busses; not shown during normal
		startup anymore).
		Beginning on some SPARC instruction disassembly support.
20051204	Minor PPC updates (WALNUT skeleton stuff).
		Continuing on the MIPS dyntrans rewrite.
		More progress on the ADB controller (a keyboard is "detected"
		by NetBSD and OpenBSD).
		Downgrading OpenBSD/arc as a guest OS from "working" to
		"almost working" in the documentation.
		Progress on Algor emulation ("v3" PCI controller).
20051205	Minor updates.
20051207	Sorting devices according to address; this reduces complexity
		of device lookups from O(n) to O(log n) in memory_rw (but no
		real performance increase (yet) in experiments).
20051210	Beginning the work on native dyntrans backends (by making a
		simple skeleton; so far only for Alpha hosts).
20051211	Some very minor SPARC updates.
20051215	Fixing a bug in the MIPS mul (note: not mult) instruction,
		so it also works with non-64-bit emulation. (Thanks to Alec
		Voropay for noticing the problem.)
20051216	More work on the fake/empty/simple/skeleton/whatever backend;
		performance doesn't increase, so this isn't really worth it,
		but it was probably worth it to prepare for a real backend
		later.
20051219	More instr call statistics gathering and analysis stuff.
20051220	Another fix for MIPS 'mul'. Also converting mul and {d,}cl{o,z}
		to dyntrans.
		memory_ppc.c syntax error fix (noticed by Peter Valchev).
		Beginning to move out machines from src/machine.c into
		individual files in src/machines (in a way similar to the
		autodev system for devices).
20051222	Updating the documentation regarding NetBSD/pmax 3.0.
20051223	- " - NetBSD/cats 3.0.
20051225	- " - NetBSD/hpcmips 3.0.
20051226	Continuing on the machine registry redesign.
		Adding support for ARM rrx (33-bit rotate).
		Fixing some signed/unsigned issues (exposed by gcc -W).
20051227	Fixing the bug which prevented a NetBSD/prep 3.0 install kernel
		from starting (triggered when an mtmsr was the last instruction
		on a page). Unfortunately not enough to get the kernel to run
		as well as the 2.1 kernels did.
20051230	Some dyntrans refactoring.
20051231	Continuing on the machine registry redesign.
20060101-10	Continuing... moving more machines. Moving MD interrupt stuff
		from machine.c into a new src/machines/interrupts.c.
20060114	Adding various mvmeppc machine skeletons.
20060115	Continuing on mvme* stuff. NetBSD/mvmeppc prints boot messages
		(for MVME1600) and reaches the root device prompt, but no
		specific hardware devices are emulated yet.
20060116	Minor updates to the mvme1600 emulation mode; the Eagle PCI bus
		seems to work without much modification, and a 21143 can be
		detected, interrupts might work (but untested so far).
		Adding a fake MK48Txx (mkclock) device, for NetBSD/mvmeppc.
20060121	Adding an aux control register for ARM. (A BIG thank you to
		Olivier Houchard for tracking down this bug.)
20060122	Adding more ARM instructions (smulXY), and dev_iq80321_7seg.
20060124	Adding disassembly of more ARM instructions (mia*, mra/mar),
		and some semi-bogus XScale and i80321 registers.
20060201-02	Various minor updates. Moving the last machines out of
		machine.c.
20060204	Adding a -c command line option, for running debugger commands
		before the simulation starts, but after all files have been
		loaded.
		Minor iq80321-related updates.
20060209	Minor hacks (DEVINIT macro, etc).
		Preparing for the generalization of the 64-bit dyntrans address
		translation subsystem.
20060216	Adding ARM ldrd (double-register load).
20060217	Continuing on various ARM-related stuff.
20060218	More progress on the ATA/wdc emulation for NetBSD/iq80321.
		NetBSD/evbarm can now be installed :-)  Updating the docs, etc.
		Continuing on Algor emulation.

$Id: HISTORY,v 1.1055 2005/11/25 22:48:36 debug Exp $
20051031	Adding disassembly support for more ARM instructions (clz,
		smul* etc), and adding a hack to support "new tiny" pages
		for StrongARM.
20051101	Minor documentation updates (NetBSD 2.0.2 -> 2.1, and OpenBSD
		3.7 -> 3.8, and lots of testing).
		Changing from 1-sector PIO mode 0 transfers to 128-sector PIO
		mode 3 (in dev_wdc).
		Various minor ARM dyntrans updates (pc-relative loads from
		within the same page as the instruction are now treated as
		constant "mov").
20051102	Re-enabling instruction combinations (they were accidentally
		disabled).
		Dyntrans TLB entries are now overwritten using a round-robin
		scheme instead of randomly. This increases performance.
		Fixing a typo in file.c (thanks to Chuan-Hua Chang for
		noticing it).
		Experimenting with adding ATAPI support to dev_wdc (to make
		emulated *BSD detect cdroms as cdroms, not harddisks).
20051104	Various minor updates.
20051105	Continuing on the ATAPI emulation. Seems to work well enough
		for a NetBSD/cats installation, but not OpenBSD/cats.
		Various other updates.
20051106	Modifying the -Y command line option to allow scaleup with
		certain graphic controllers (only dev_vga so far), not just
		scaledown.
		Some minor dyntrans cleanups.
20051107	Beginning a cleanup up the PCI subsystem (removing the
		read_register hack, etc).
20051108	Continuing the cleanup; splitting up some pci devices into a
		normal autodev device and some separate pci glue code.
20051109	Continuing on the PCI bus stuff; all old pci_*.c have been
		incorporated into normal devices and/or rewritten as glue code
		only, adding a dummy Intel 82371AB PIIX4 for Malta (not really
		tested yet).
		Minor pckbc fix so that Linux doesn't complain.
		Working on the DEC 21143 NIC (ethernet mac rom stuff mostly).
		Various other minor fixes.
20051110	Some more ARM dyntrans fine-tuning (e.g. some instruction
		combinations (cmps followed by conditional branch within the
		same page) and special cases for DPIs with regform when the
		shifter isn't used).
20051111	ARM dyntrans updates: O(n)->O(1) for just-mark-as-non-
		writable in the generic pc_to_pointers function, and some other
		minor hacks.
		Merging Cobalt and evbmips (Malta) ISA interrupt handling,
		and some minor fixes to allow Linux to accept harddisk irqs.
20051112	Minor device updates (pckbc, dec21143, lpt, ...), most
		importantly fixing the ALI M1543/M5229 so that harddisk irqs
		work with Linux/CATS.
20051113	Some more generalizations of the PCI subsystem.
		Finally took the time to add a hack for SCSI CDROM TOCs; this
		enables OpenBSD to use partition 'a' (as needed by the OpenBSD
		installer), and Windows NT's installer to get a bit further.
		Also fixing dev_wdc to allow Linux to detect ATAPI CDROMs.
		Continuing on the DEC 21143.
20051114	Minor ARM dyntrans tweaks; ARM cmps+branch optimization when
		comparing with 0, and generalizing the xchg instr. comb.
		Adding disassembly of ARM mrrc/mcrr and q{,d}{add,sub}.
20051115	Continuing on various PPC things (BATs, other address trans-
		lation things, various loads/stores, BeBox emulation, etc.).
		Beginning to work on PPC interrupt/exception support.
20051116	Factoring out some code which initializes legacy ISA devices
		from those machines that use them (bus_isa).
		Continuing on PPC interrupt/exception support.
20051117	Minor Malta fixes: RTC year offset = 80, disabling a speed hack
		which caused NetBSD to detect a too fast cpu, and adding a new
		hack to make Linux detect a faster cpu.
		Continuing on the Artesyn PM/PPC emulation mode.
		Adding an Algor emulation skeleton (P4032 and P5064);
		implementing some of the basics.
		Continuing on PPC emulation in general; usage of unimplemented
		SPRs is now easier to track, continuing on memory/exception
		related issues, etc.
20051118	More work on PPC emulation (tgpr0..3, exception handling,
		memory stuff, syscalls, etc.).
20051119	Changing the ARM dyntrans code to mostly use cpu->pc, and not
		necessarily use arm reg 15. Seems to work.
		Various PPC updates; continuing on the PReP emulation mode.
20051120	Adding a workaround/hack to dev_mc146818 to allow NetBSD/prep
		to detect the clock.
20051121	More cleanup of the PCI bus (memory and I/O bases, etc).
		Continuing on various PPC things (decrementer and timebase,
		WDCs on obio (on PReP) use irq 13, not 14/15).
20051122	Continuing on the CPC700 controller (interrupts etc) for PMPPC,
		and on PPC stuff in general.
		Finally! After some bug fixes to the virtual to physical addr
		translation, NetBSD/{prep,pmppc} 2.1 reach userland and are
		stable enough to be interacted with.
		More PCI updates; reverse-endian device access for PowerPC etc.
20051123	Generalizing the IEEE floating point subsystem (moving it out
		from src/cpus/cpu_mips_coproc.c into a new src/float_emul.c).
		Input via slave xterms was sometimes not really working; fixing
		this for ns16550, and a warning message is now displayed if
		multiple non-xterm consoles are active.
		Adding some PPC floating point support, etc.
		Various interrupt related updates (dev_wdc, _ns16550, _8259,
		and the isa32 common code in machine.c).
		NetBSD/prep can now be installed! :-) (Well, with some manual
		commands necessary before running sysinst.) Updating the
		documentation and various other things to reflect this.
20051124	Various minor documentation updates.
		Continuing the work on the DEC 21143 NIC.
20051125	LOTS of work on the 21143. Both OpenBSD and NetBSD work fine
		with it now, except that OpenBSD sometimes gives a time-out
		warning.
		Minor documentation updates.

20051011        Passing -A as the default boot arg for CATS (works fine with
                OpenBSD/cats).
20051012	Fixing the VGA cursor offset bug, and speeding up framebuffer
		redraws if character cells contain the same thing as during
		the last redraw.
20051013	Adding a slow strd ARM instruction hack.
20051017	Minor updates: Adding a dummy i80321 Verde controller (for
		XScale emulation), fixing the disassembly of the ARM "ldrd"
		instruction, adding "support" for less-than-4KB pages for ARM
		(by not adding them to translation tables).
20051020	Continuing on some HPCarm stuff. A NetBSD/hpcarm kernel prints
		some boot messages on an emulated Jornada 720.
		Making dev_ram work better with dyntrans (speeds up some things
		quite a bit).
20051021	Automatically generating some of the most common ARM load/store
		multiple instructions.
20051022	Better statistics gathering for the ARM load/store multiple.
		Various other dyntrans and device updates.
20051023	Various minor updates.
20051024	Continuing; minor device and dyntrans fine-tuning. Adding the
		first "reasonable" instruction combination hacks for ARM (the
		cores of NetBSD/cats' memset and memcpy).
20051025	Fixing a dyntrans-related bug in dev_vga. Also changing the
		dyntrans low/high access notification to only be updated on
		writes, not reads. Hopefully it will be enough. (dev_vga in
		charcell mode now seems to work correctly with both reads and
		writes.)
		Experimenting with gathering dyntrans statistics (which parts
		of emulated RAM that are actually executed), and adding
		instruction combination hacks for cache cleaning and a part of
		NetBSD's scanc() function.
20051026	Adding a bitmap for ARM emulation which indicates if a page is
		(specifically) user accessible; loads and stores with the t-
		flag set can now use the translation arrays, which results in
		a measurable speedup.
20051027	Dyntrans updates; adding an extra bitmap array for 32-bit
		emulation modes, speeding up the check whether a physical page
		has any code translations or not (O(n) -> O(1)). Doing a
		similar reduction of O(n) to O(1) by avoiding the scan through
		the translation entries on a translation update (32-bit mode
		only).
		Various other minor hacks.
20051029	Quick release, without any testing at all.

20050628	Continuing the work on the ARM translation engine. end_of_page
		works. Experimenting with load/store translation caches
		(virtual -> physical -> host).
20050629	More ARM stuff (memory access translation cache, mostly). This
		might break a lot of stuff elsewhere, probably some MIPS-
		related translation things.
20050630	Many load/stores are now automatically generated and included
		into cpu_arm_instr.c; 1024 functions in total (!).
		Fixes based on feedback from Alec Voropay: only print 8 hex
		digits instead of 16 in some cases when emulating 32-bit
		machines; similar 8 vs 16 digit fix for breakpoint addresses;
		4Kc has 16 TLB entries, not 48; the MIPS config select1
		register is now printed with "reg ,0".
		Also changing many other occurances of 16 vs 8 digit output.
		Adding cache associativity fields to mips_cpu_types.h; updating
		some other cache fields; making the output of
		mips_cpu_dumpinfo() look nicer.
		Generalizing the bintrans stuff for device accesses to also
		work with the new translation system. (This might also break
		some MIPS things.)
		Adding multi-load/store instructions to the ARM disassembler
		and the translator, and some optimizations of various kinds.
20050701	Adding a simple dev_disk (it can read/write sectors from
		disk images).
20050712	Adding dev_ether (a simple ethernet send/receive device).
		Debugger command "ninstrs" for toggling show_nr_of_instructions
		during runtime.
		Removing the framebuffer logo.
20050713	Continuing on dev_ether.
		Adding a dummy cpu_alpha (again).
20050714	More work on cpu_alpha.
20050715	More work on cpu_alpha. Many instructions work, enough to run
		a simple framebuffer fill test (similar to the ARM test).
20050716	More Alpha stuff.
20050717	Minor updates (Alpha stuff).
20050718	Minor updates (Alpha stuff).
20050719	Generalizing some Alpha instructions.
20050720	More Alpha-related updates.
20050721	Continuing on cpu_alpha. Importing rpb.h from NetBSD/alpha.
20050722	Alpha-related updates: userland stuff (Hello World using
		write() compiled statically for FreeBSD/Alpha runs fine), and
		more instructions are now implemented.
20050723	Fixing ldq_u and stq_u.
		Adding more instructions (conditional moves, masks, extracts,
		shifts).
20050724	More FreeBSD/Alpha userland stuff, and adding some more
		instructions (inserts).
20050725	Continuing on the Alpha stuff. (Adding dummy ldt/stt.)
		Adding a -A command line option to turn off alignment checks
		in some cases (for translated code).
		Trying to remove the old bintrans code which updated the pc
		and nr_of_executed_instructions for every instruction.
20050726	Making another attempt att removing the pc/nr of instructions
		code. This time it worked, huge performance increase for
		artificial test code, but performance loss for real-world
		code :-( so I'm scrapping that code for now.
		Tiny performance increase on Alpha (by using ret instead of
		jmp, to play nice with the Alpha's branch prediction) for the
		old MIPS bintrans backend.
20050727	Various minor fixes and cleanups.
20050728	Switching from a 2-level virtual to host/physical translation
		system for ARM emulation, to a 1-level translation.
		Trying to switch from 2-level to 1-level for the MIPS bintrans
		system as well (Alpha only, so far), but there is at least one
		problem: caches and/or how they work with device mappings.
20050730	Doing the 2-level to 1-level conversion for the i386 backend.
		The cache/device bug is still there for R2K/3K :(
		Various other minor updates (Malta etc).
		The mc146818 clock now updates the UIP bit in a way which works
		better with Linux for at least sgimips and Malta emulation.
		Beginning the work on refactoring the dyntrans system.
20050731	Continuing the dyntrans refactoring.
		Fixing a small but serious host alignment bug in memory_rw.
		Adding support for big-endian load/stores to the i386 bintrans
		backend.
		Another minor i386 bintrans backend update: stores from the
		zero register are now one (or two) loads shorter.
		The slt and sltu instructions were incorrectly implemented for
		the i386 backend; only using them for 32-bit mode for now.
20050801	Continuing the dyntrans refactoring.
		Cleanup of the ns16550 serial controller (removing unnecessary
		code).
		Bugfix (memory corruption bug) in dev_gt, and a patch/hack from
		Alec Voropay for Linux/Malta.
20050802	More cleanup/refactoring of the dyntrans subsystem: adding
		phys_page pointers to the lookup tables, for quick jumps
		between translated pages.
		Better fix for the ns16550 device (but still no real FIFO
		functionality).
		Converting cpu_ppc to the new dyntrans system. This means that
		I will have to start from scratch with implementing each
		instruction, and figure out how to implement dual 64/32-bit
		modes etc.
		Removing the URISC CPU family, because it was useless.
20050803	When selecting a machine type, the main type can now be omitted
		if the subtype name is unique. (I.e. -E can be omitted.)
		Fixing a dyntrans/device update bug. (Writes to offset 0 of
		a device could sometimes go unnoticed.)
		Adding an experimental "instruction combination" hack for
		ARM for memset-like byte fill loops.
20050804	Minor progress on cpu_alpha and related things.
		Finally fixing the MIPS dmult/dmultu bugs.
		Fixing some minor TODOs.
20050805	Generalizing the 8259 PIC. It now also works with Cobalt
		and evbmips emulation, in addition to the x86 hack.
		Finally converting the ns16550 device to use devinit.
		Continuing the work on the dyntrans system. Thinking about
		how to add breakpoints.
20050806	More dyntrans updates. Breakpoints seem to work now.
20050807	Minor updates: cpu_alpha and related things; removing
		dev_malta (as it isn't used any more).
		Dyntrans: working on general "show trace tree" support.
		The trace tree stuff now works with both the old MIPS code and
		with newer dyntrans modes. :)
		Continuing on Alpha-related stuff (trying to get *BSD to boot
		a bit further, adding more instructions, etc).
20050808	Adding a dummy IA64 cpu family, and continuing the refactoring
		of the dyntrans system.
		Removing the regression test stuff, because it was more or
		less useless.
		Adding loadlinked/storeconditional type instructions to the
		Alpha emulation. (Needed for Linux/alpha. Not very well tested
		yet.)
20050809	The function call trace tree now prints a per-function nr of
		arguments. (Semi-meaningless, since that data isn't read yet
		from the ELFs; some hardcoded symbols such as memcpy() and
		strlen() work fine, though.)
		More dyntrans refactoring; taking out more of the things that
		are common to all cpu families.
20050810	Working on adding support for "dual mode" for PPC dyntrans
		(i.e. both 64-bit and 32-bit modes).
		(Re)adding some simple PPC instructions.
20050811	Adding a dummy M68K cpu family. The dyntrans system isn't ready
		for variable-length ISAs yet, so it's completely bogus so far.
		Re-adding more PPC instructions.
		Adding a hack to src/file.c which allows OpenBSD/mac68k a.out
		kernels to be loaded.
		Beginning to add PPC loads/stores. So far they only work in
		32-bit mode.
20050812	The configure file option "add_remote" now accepts symbolic
		host names, in addition to numeric IPv4 addresses.
		Re-adding more PPC instructions.
20050814	Continuing to port back more PPC instructions.
		Found and fixed the cache/device write-update bug for 32-bit
		MIPS bintrans. :-)
		Triggered a really weird and annoying bug in Compaq's C
		compiler; ccc sometimes outputs code which loads from an
		address _before_ checking whether the pointer was NULL or not.
		(I'm not sure how to handle this problem.)
20050815	Removing all of the old x86 instruction execution code; adding
		a new (dummy) dyntrans module for x86.
		Taking the first steps to extend the dyntrans system to support
		variable-length instructions.
		Slowly preparing for the next release.
20050816	Adding a dummy SPARC cpu module.
		Minor updates (documentation etc) for the release.

20050617	Experimenting some more with netbooting OpenBSD/sgi. Adding
		a hack which allows emulated ethernet networks to be
		distributed across multiple emulator processes.
20050618	Minor updates (documentation, dummy YAMON emulation, etc).
20050620	strcpy/strcat -> strlcpy/strlcat updates.
		Some more progress on evbmips (Malta).
20050621	Adding a section to doc/configfiles.html about ethernet
		emulation across multiple hosts.
		Beginning the work on the ARM translation engine (using the
		dynamic-but-not-binary translation method).
		Fixing a bintrans bug: 0x9fc00000 should always be treated as
		PROM area, just as 0xbfc00000 is.
		Minor progress on Malta emulation (the PCI-ISA bus).
20050622	NetBSD/evbmips can now be installed (using another emulated
		machine) and run (including userland and so on). :-)
		Spliting up the bintrans haddr_entry field into two (one for
		read, one for write). Probably not much of a speed increase,
		though.
		Updating some NetBSD 2.0 -> 2.0.2 in the documentation.
20050623	Minor updates (documentation, the TODO file, etc).
		gzipped kernels are now always automagically gunzipped when
		loaded.
20050624	Adding a dummy Playstation Portable (PSP) mode, just barely
		enough to run Hello World (in weird colors :-).
		Removing the -b command line option; old bintrans is enabled
		by default instead. It makes more sense.
		Trying to finally fix the non-working performance measurement
		thing (instr/second etc).
20050625	Continuing on the essential basics for ARM emulation. Two
		instructions seem to work, a branch and a simple "mov". (The
		mov arguments are not correct yet.) Performance is definitely
		reasonable.
		Various other minor updates.
		Adding the ARM "bl" instruction.
		Adding support for combining multiple ARM instructions into one
		function call. ("mov" + "mov" is the only one implemented so
		far, but it seems to work.)
		Cleaning up some IP32 interrupt things (crime/mace); disabling
		the PS/2 keyboard controller on IP32, so that NetBSD/sgimips
		boots into userland again.
20050626	Finally! NetBSD/sgimips netboots. Adding instructions to
		doc/guestoses.html on how to set up an nfs server etc.
		Various other minor fixes.
		Playstation Portable ".pbp" files can now be used directly.
		(The ELF part of the .pbp is extracted transparently.)
		Converting some sprintf -> snprintf.
		Adding some more instructions to the ARM disassembler.
20050627	More ARM updates. Adding some simple ldr(b), str(b),
		cmps, and conditional branch instructions, enough to run
		a simple Hello World program.
		All ARM instructions are now inlined/generated for all possible
		condition codes.
		Adding add and sub, and more load/store instructions.
		Removing dummy files: cpu_alpha.c, cpu_hppa.c, and cpu_sparc.c.
		Some minor documentation updates; preparing for a 0.3.4
		release. Updating some URLs.

20050428	Disabling the "-fmove-all-movables" option in the configure
		script, because it causes the compile to fail on OpenBSD/sgi.
20050502	Minor updates.
20050503	Removing the WRT54G mode (it was bogus anyway), and adding a
		comment about Windows NT for MIPS in doc/experiments.html.
		Minor updates to the x86 instruction decoding.
20050504	Adding some more x86 instructions.
		Adding support for reading files from ISO9660 CDROMs (including
		gzipped files). It's an ugly hack, but it seems to work.
		Various other minor updates (dev_vga.c, pc_bios.c etc).
20050505	Some more x86-related updates.
		Beginning (what I hope will be) a major code cleanup phase.
		"bootris" (an x86 bootsector) runs :-)
20050506	Adding some more x86 instructions.
20050507	tmpnam => mkstemp.
		Working on a hack to allow VGA charcells to be shown even when
		not running with X11.
		Adding more x86 instructions.
20050508	x86 32-bit SIB addressing fix, and more instructions.
20050509	Adding more x86 instructions.
20050510	Minor documentation updates, and other updates (x86 stuff etc.)
20050511	More x86-related updates.
20050513	Various updates, mostly x86-related. (Trying to fix flag 
		calculation, factoring out the ugly shift/rotate code, and
		some other things.)
20050514	Adding support for loading some old i386 a.out executables.
		Finally beginning the cleanup of machine/PROM/bios dependant
		info.
		Some minor documentation updates.
		Trying to clean up ARCBIOS stuff a little.
20050515	Trying to make it possible to actually use more than one disk
		type per machine (floppy, ide, scsi).
		Trying to clean up the kbd vs PROM console stuff. (For PC and
		ARC emulation modes, mostly.)
		Beginning to add an 8259 interrupt controller, and connecting
		it to the x86 emulation.
20050516	The first x86 interrupts seem to work (keyboard stuff).
		Adding a 8253/8254 programmable interval timer skeleton.
		FreeDOS now reaches a command prompt and can be interacted
		with.
20050517	After some bugfixes, MS-DOS also (sometimes) reaches a
		command prompt now.
		Trying to fix the pckbc to work with MS-DOS' keyb.com, but no
		success yet.
20050518	Adding a simple 32-bit x86 MMU skeleton.
20050519	Some more work on the x86 stuff. (Beginning the work on paging,
		and various other fixes).
20050520	More updates. Working on dev_vga (4-bit graphics modes), adding
		40 columns support to the PC bios emulation.
		Trying to add support for resizing windows when switching
		between graphics modes.
20050521	Many more x86-related updates.
20050522	Correcting the initial stack pointer's sign-extension for
		ARCBIOS emulation (thanks to Alec Voropay for noticing the
		error).
		Continuing on the cleanup (ARCBIOS etc).
		dev_vga updates.
20050523	More x86 updates: trying to add some support for protected mode
		interrupts (via gate descriptors) and many other fixes.
		More ARCBIOS cleanup.
		Adding a device flag which indicates that reads cause no
		side-effects. (Useful for the "dump" command in the debugger,
		and other things.)
		Adding support for directly starting up x86 ELFs, skipping the
		bootloader stage. (Most ELFs, however, are not suitable for
		this.)
20050524	Adding simple 32-bit x86 TSS task switching, but no privilege
		level support yet.
		More work on dev_vga. A small "Copper bars" demo works. :-)
		Adding support for Trap Flag (single-step exceptions), at least
		in real mode, and various other x86-related fixes.
20050525	Adding a new disk image prefix (gH;S;) which can be used to
		override the default nr of heads and sectors per track.
20050527	Various bug fixes, more work on the x86 mode (stack change on
		interrupts between different priv.levels), and some minor
		documentation updates.
20050528	Various fixes (x86 stuff).
20050529	More x86 fixes. An OpenBSD/i386 bootfloppy reaches userland
		and can be interacted with (although there are problems with
		key repetition). NetBSD/i386 triggers a serious CISC-related
		problem: instruction fetches across page boundaries, where
		the later part isn't actually part of the instruction.
20050530	Various minor updates. (Documentation updates, etc.)
20050531	Adding some experimental code (experiments/new_test_*) which
		could be useful for dynamic (but not binary) translation in
		the future.
20050602	Adding a dummy ARM skeleton.
		Fixing the pckbc key repetition problem (by adding release
		scancodes for all keypresses).
20050603	Minor updates for the next release.
20050604	Release testing. Minor updates.

==============  RELEASE 0.3.3  ==============

20050604	There'll probably be a 0.3.3.1 release soon, with some very
		very tiny updates.
