$Id: HISTORY,v 1.1497 2007/03/18 03:41:36 debug Exp $
20070224	Minor update to the initialization of the ns16550 in
		machine_walnut.c, to allow that machine type to boot with the
		new interrupt system (although it is still a dummy machine).
		Adding a wdc at 0x14000000 to machine_landisk.c, and fixing
		the SCIF serial interrupts of the SH4 cpu enough to get
		NetBSD/landisk booting from a disk image :-)  Adding a
		preliminary install instruction skeleton to guestoses.html.
20070306	Adding SH-IPL+G PROM emulation, and also passing the "end"
		symbol in r5 on bootup, for Landisk emulation. This is enough
		to get OpenBSD/landisk to install :)  Adding a preliminary
		install instruction skeleton to the documentation. SuperH
		emulation is still shaky, though :-/
20070307	Fixed a strangeness in memory_sh.c (read/write was never
		returned for any page). (Unknown whether this fixes any actual
		problems, though.)
20070308	dev_ram.c fix: invalidate code translations on writes to
		RAM, emulated as separate devices. Linux/dreamcast gets
		further in the boot process than before, but still bugs out
		in userland.
		Fixing bugs in the "stc.l gbr,@-rN" and "ldc.l @rN+,gbr" SuperH 
		instructions (they should NOT check the MD bit), allowing the
		Linux/dreamcast Live CD to reach userland correctly :-)
20070310	Changing the cpu name "Alpha" in src/useremul.c to "21364" to
		unbreak userland syscall emulation of FreeBSD/Alpha binaries.
20070314	Applying a patch from Michael Yaroslavtsev which fixes the
		previous Linux lib64 patch to the configure script.
20070315	Adding a (dummy) sun4v machine type, and SPARC T1 cpu type.
20070316	Creating a new directory, src/disk, and moving diskimage.c
		to it. Separating out bootblock loading stuff from emul.c into
		new files in src/disk.
		Adding some more SPARC registers.
20070318	Preparing/testing for a minirelease, 0.4.4.1.

$Id: HISTORY,v 1.1480 2007/02/19 01:34:42 debug Exp $
20061029	Changing usleep(1) calls in the debugger to usleep(10000)
20061107	Adding a new disk image option (-d o...) which sets the ISO9660
		filesystem base offset; also making some other hacks to allow
		NetBSD/dreamcast and homebrew demos/games to boot directly
		from a filesystem image.
		Moving Dreamcast-specific stuff in the documentation to its
		own page (dreamcast.html).
		Adding a border to the Dreamcast PVR framebuffer.
20061108	Adding a -T command line option (again?), for halting the
		emulator on unimplemented memory accesses.
20061109	Continuing on various SH4 and Dreamcast related things.
		The emulator should now halt on more unimplemented device
		accesses, instead of just printing a warning, forcing me to
		actually implement missing stuff :)
20061111	Continuing on SH4 and Dreamcast stuff.
		Adding a bogus Landisk (SH4) machine mode.
20061112	Implementing some parts of the Dreamcast GDROM device. With
		some ugly hacks, NetBSD can (barely) mount an ISO image.
20061113	NetBSD/dreamcast now starts booting from the Live CD image,
		but crashes randomly quite early on in the boot process.
20061122	Beginning on a skeleton interrupt.h and interrupt.c for the
		new interrupt subsystem.
20061124	Continuing on the new interrupt system; taking the first steps
		to attempt to connect CPUs (SuperH and MIPS) and devices
		(dev_cons and SH4 timer interrupts) to it. Many things will
		probably break from now on.
20061125	Converting dev_ns16550, dev_8253 to the new interrupt system.
		Attempting to begin to convert the ISA bus.
20061130	Incorporating a patch from Brian Foley for the configure
		script, which checks for X11 libs in /usr/X11R6/lib64 (which
		is used on some Linux systems).
20061227	Adding a note in the man page about booting from Dreamcast
		CDROM images (i.e. that no external kernel is needed).
20061229	Continuing on the interrupt system rewrite: beginning to
		convert more devices, adding abort() calls for legacy interrupt
		system calls so that everything now _has_ to be rewritten!
		Almost all machine modes are now completely broken.
20061230	More progress on removing old interrupt code, mostly related
		to the ISA bus + devices, the LCA bus (on AlphaBook1), and
		the Footbridge bus (for CATS). And some minor PCI stuff.
		Connecting the ARM cpu to the new interrupt system.
		The CATS, NetWinder, and QEMU_MIPS machine modes now work with
		the new interrupt system :)
20061231	Connecting PowerPC CPUs to the new interrupt system.
		Making PReP machines (IBM 6050) work again.
		Beginning to convert the GT PCI controller (for e.g. Malta
		and Cobalt emulation). Some things work, but not everything.
		Updating Copyright notices for 2007.
20070101	Converting dev_kn02 from legacy style to devinit; the 3max
		machine mode now works with the new interrupt system :-]
20070105	Beginning to convert the SGI O2 machine to the new interrupt
		system; finally converting O2 (IP32) devices to devinit, etc.
20070106	Continuing on the interrupt system redesign/rewrite; KN01
		(PMAX), KN230, and Dreamcast ASIC interrupts should work again,
		moving out stuff from machine.h and devices.h into the
		corresponding devices, beginning the rewrite of i80321
		interrupts, etc.
20070107	Beginning on the rewrite of Eagle interrupt stuff (PReP, etc).
20070117	Beginning the rewrite of Algor (V3) interrupts (finally
		changing dev_v3 into devinit style).
20070118	Removing the "bus" registry concept from machine.h, because
		it was practically meaningless.
		Continuing on the rewrite of Algor V3 ISA interrupts.
20070121	More work on Algor interrupts; they are now working again,
		well enough to run NetBSD/algor. :-)
20070122	Converting VR41xx (HPCmips) interrupts. NetBSD/hpcmips
		can be installed using the new interrupt system :-)
20070123	Making the testmips mode work with the new interrupt system.
20070127	Beginning to convert DEC5800 devices to devinit, and to the
		new interrupt system.
		Converting Playstation 2 devices to devinit, and converting
		the interrupt system. Also fixing a severe bug: the interrupt
		mask register on Playstation 2 is bitwise _toggled_ on writes.
20070128	Removing the dummy NetGear machine mode and the 8250 device
		(which was only used by the NetGear machine).
		Beginning to convert the MacPPC GC (Grand Central) interrupt
		controller to the new interrupt system.
		Converting Jazz interrupts (PICA61 etc.) to the new interrupt
		system. NetBSD/arc can be installed again :-)
		Fixing the JAZZ timer (hardcoding it at 100 Hz, works with
		NetBSD and it is better than a completely dummy timer as it
		was before).
		Converting dev_mp to the new interrupt system, although I
		haven't had time to actually test it yet.
		Completely removing src/machines/interrupts.c, cpu_interrupt
		and cpu_interrupt_ack in src/cpu.c, and
		src/include/machine_interrupts.h! Adding fatal error messages
		+ abort() in the few places that are left to fix.
		Converting dev_z8530 to the new interrupt system.
		FINALLY removing the md_int struct completely from the
		machine struct.
		SH4 fixes (adding a PADDR invalidation in the ITLB replacement
		code in memory_sh.c); the NetBSD/dreamcast LiveCD now runs
		all the way to the login prompt, and can be interacted with :-)
		Converting the CPC700 controller (PCI and interrupt controller
		for PM/PPC) to the new interrupt system.
20070129	Fixing MACE ISA interrupts (SGI IP32 emulation). Both NetBSD/
		sgimips' and OpenBSD/sgi's ramdisk kernels can now be
		interacted with again.
20070130	Moving out the MIPS multi_lw and _sw instruction combinations
		so that they are auto-generated at compile time instead.
20070131	Adding detection of amd64/x86_64 hosts in the configure script,
		for doing initial experiments (again :-) with native code
		generation.
		Adding a -k command line option to set the size of the dyntrans
		cache, and a -B command line option to disable native code
		generation, even if GXemul was compiled with support for
		native code generation for the specific host CPU architecture.
20070201	Experimenting with a skeleton for native code generation.
		Changing the default behaviour, so that native code generation
		is now disabled by default, and has to be enabled by using
		-b on the command line.
20070202	Continuing the native code generation experiments.
		Making PCI interrupts work for Footbridge again.
20070203	More native code generation experiments.
		Removing most of the native code generation experimental code,
		it does not make sense to include any quick hacks like this.
		Minor cleanup/removal of some more legacy MIPS interrupt code.
20070204	Making i80321 interrupts work again (for NetBSD/evbarm etc.),
		and fixing the timer at 100 Hz.
20070206	Experimenting with removing the wdc interrupt slowness hack.
20070207	Lowering the number of dyntrans TLB entries for MIPS from
		192 to 128, resulting in a minor speed improvement.
		Minor optimization to the code invalidation routine in
		cpu_dyntrans.c.
20070208	Increasing (experimentally) the nr of dyntrans instructions per
		loop from 60 to 120.
20070210	Commenting out (experimentally) the dyntrans_device_danger
		detection in memory_rw.c.
		Changing the testmips and baremips machines to use a revision 2
		MIPS64 CPU by default, instead of revision 1.
		Removing the dummy i960, IA64, x86, AVR32, and HP PA-RISC
		files, the PC bios emulation, and the Olivetti M700 (ARC) and
		db64360 emulation modes.
20070211	Adding an "mp" demo to the demos directory, which tests the
		SMP functionality of the testmips machine.
		Fixing PReP interrupts some more. NetBSD/prep now boots again.
20070216	Adding a "nop workaround" for booting Mach/PMAX to the
		documentation; thanks to Artur Bujdoso for the values.
		Converting more of the MacPPC interrupt stuff to the new
		system.
		Beginning to convert BeBox interrupts to the new system.
		PPC603e should NOT have the PPC_NO_DEC flag! Removing it.
		Correcting BeBox clock speed (it was set to 100 in the NetBSD
		bootinfo block, but should be 33000000/4), allowing NetBSD
		to start without using the (incorrect) PPC_NO_DEC hack.
20070217	Implementing (slow) AltiVec vector loads and stores, allowing
		NetBSD/macppc to finally boot using the GENERIC kernel :-)
		Updating the documentation with install instructions for
		NetBSD/macppc.
20070218-19	Regression testing for the release.

$Id: HISTORY,v 1.1421 2006/11/06 05:32:37 debug Exp $
20060816	Adding a framework for emulated/virtual timers (src/timer.c),
		using only setitimer().
		Rewriting the mc146818 to use the new timer framework.
20060817	Adding a call to gettimeofday() every now and then (once every
		second, at the moment) to resynch the timer if it drifts.
		Beginning to convert the ISA timer interrupt mechanism (8253
		and 8259) to use the new timer framework.
		Removing the -I command line option.
20060819	Adding the -I command line option again, with new semantics.
		Working on Footbridge timer interrupts; NetBSD/NetWinder and
		NetBSD/CATS now run at correct speed, but unfortunately with
		HUGE delays during bootup.
20060821	Some minor m68k updates. Adding the first instruction: nop. :)
		Minor Alpha emulation updates.
20060822	Adding a FreeBSD development specific YAMON environment
		variable ("khz") (as suggested by Bruce M. Simpson).
		Moving YAMON environment variable initialization from
		machine_evbmips.c into promemul/yamon.c, and adding some more
		variables.
		Continuing on the LCA PCI bus controller (for Alpha machines).
20060823	Continuing on the timer stuff: experimenting with MIPS count/
		compare interrupts connected to the timer framework.
20060825	Adding bogus SCSI commands 0x51 (SCSICDROM_READ_DISCINFO) and
		0x52 (SCSICDROM_READ_TRACKINFO) to the SCSI emulation layer,
		to allow NetBSD/pmax 4.0_BETA to be installed from CDROM.
		Minor updates to the LCA PCI controller.
20060827	Implementing a CHIP8 cpu mode, and a corresponding CHIP8
		machine, for fun. Disassembly support for all instructions,
		and most of the common instructions have been implemented: mvi,
		mov_imm, add_imm, jmp, rand, cls, sprite, skeq_imm, jsr,
		skne_imm, bcd, rts, ldr, str, mov, or, and, xor, add, sub,
		font, ssound, sdelay, gdelay, bogus skup/skpr, skeq, skne.
20060828	Beginning to convert the CHIP8 cpu in the CHIP8 machine to a
		(more correct) RCA 180x cpu. (Disassembly for all 1802
		instructions has been implemented, but no execution yet, and
		no 1805 extended instructions.)
20060829	Minor Alpha emulation updates.
20060830	Beginning to experiment a little with PCI IDE for SGI O2.
		Fixing the cursor key mappings for MobilePro 770 emulation.
		Fixing the LK201 warning caused by recent NetBSD/pmax.
		The MIPS R41xx standby, suspend, and hibernate instructions now
		behave like the RM52xx/MIPS32/MIPS64 wait instruction.
		Fixing dev_wdc so it calculates correct (64-bit) offsets before
		giving them to diskimage_access().
20060831	Continuing on Alpha emulation (OSF1 PALcode).
20060901	Minor Alpha updates; beginning on virtual memory pagetables.
		Removed the limit for max nr of devices (in preparation for
		allowing devices' base addresses to be changed during runtime).
		Adding a hack for MIPS [d]mfc0 select 0 (except the count
		register), so that the coproc register is simply copied.
		The MIPS suspend instruction now exits the emulator, instead
		of being treated as a wait instruction (this causes NetBSD/
		hpcmips to get correct 'halt' behavior).
		The VR41xx RTC now returns correct time.
		Connecting the VR41xx timer to the timer framework (fixed at
		128 Hz, for now).
		Continuing on SPARC emulation, adding more instructions:
		restore, ba_xcc, ble. The rectangle drawing demo works :)
		Removing the last traces of the old ENABLE_CACHE_EMULATION
		MIPS stuff (not usable with dyntrans anyway).
20060902	Splitting up src/net.c into several smaller files in its own
		subdirectory (src/net/).
20060903	Cleanup of the files in src/net/, to make them less ugly.
20060904	Continuing on the 'settings' subsystem.
		Minor progress on the SPARC emulation mode.
20060905	Cleanup of various things, and connecting the settings
		infrastructure to various subsystems (emul, machine, cpu, etc).
		Changing the lk201 mouse update routine to not rely on any
		emulated hardware framebuffer cursor coordinates, but instead
		always do (semi-usable) relative movements.
20060906	Continuing on the lk201 mouse stuff. Mouse behaviour with
		multiple framebuffers (which was working in Ultrix) is now
		semi-broken (but it still works, in a way).
		Moving the documentation about networking into its own file
		(networking.html), and refreshing it a bit. Adding an example
		of how to use ethernet frame direct-access (udp_snoop).
20060907	Continuing on the settings infrastructure.
20060908	Minor updates to SH emulation: for 32-bit emulation: delay
		slots and the 'jsr @Rn' instruction. I'm putting 64-bit SH5 on
		ice, for now.
20060909-10	Implementing some more 32-bit SH instructions. Removing the
		64-bit mode completely. Enough has now been implemented to run
		the rectangle drawing demo. :-)
20060912	Adding more SH instructions.
20060916	Continuing on SH emulation (some more instructions: div0u,
		div1, rotcl/rotcr, more mov instructions, dt, braf, sets, sett,
		tst_imm, dmuls.l, subc, ldc_rm_vbr, movt, clrt, clrs, clrmac).
		Continuing on the settings subsystem (beginning on reading/
		writing settings, removing bugs, and connecting more cpus to
		the framework).
20060919	More work on SH emulation; adding an ldc banked instruction,
		and attaching a 640x480 framebuffer to the Dreamcast machine
		mode (NetBSD/dreamcast prints the NetBSD copyright banner :-),
		and then panics).
20060920	Continuing on the settings subsystem.
20060921	Fixing the Footbridge timer stuff so that NetBSD/cats and
		NetBSD/netwinder boot up without the delays.
20060922	Temporarily hardcoding MIPS timer interrupt to 100 Hz. With
		'wait' support disabled, NetBSD/malta and Linux/malta run at
		correct speed.
20060923	Connecting dev_gt to the timer framework, so that NetBSD/cobalt
		runs at correct speed.
		Moving SH4-specific memory mapped registers into its own
		device (dev_sh4.c).
		Running with -N now prints "idling" instead of bogus nr of
		instrs/second (which isn't valid anyway) while idling.
20060924	Algor emulation should now run at correct speed.
		Adding disassembly support for some MIPS64 revision 2
		instructions: ext, dext, dextm, dextu.
20060926	The timer framework now works also when the MIPS wait
		instruction is used.
20060928	Re-implementing checks for coprocessor availability for MIPS
		cop0 instructions. (Thanks to Carl van Schaik for noticing the
		lack of cop0 availability checks.)
20060929	Implementing an instruction combination hack which treats
		NetBSD/pmax' idle loop as a wait-like instruction.
20060930	The ENTRYHI_R_MASK was missing in (at least) memory_mips_v2p.c,
		causing TLB lookups to sometimes succeed when they should have
		failed. (A big thank you to Juli Mallett for noticing the
		problem.)
		Adding disassembly support for more MIPS64 revision 2 opcodes
		(seb, seh, wsbh, jalr.hb, jr.hb, synci, ins, dins, dinsu,
		dinsm, dsbh, dshd, ror, dror, rorv, drorv, dror32). Also
		implementing seb, seh, dsbh, dshd, and wsbh.
		Implementing an instruction combination hack for Linux/pmax'
		idle loop, similar to the NetBSD/pmax case.
20061001	Changing the NetBSD/sgimips install instructions to extract
		files from an iso image, instead of downloading them via ftp.
20061002	More-than-31-bit userland addresses in memory_mips_v2p.c were
		not actually working; applying a fix from Carl van Schaik to
		enable them to work + making some other updates (adding kuseg
		support).
		Fixing hpcmips (vr41xx) timer initialization.
		Experimenting with O(n)->O(1) reduction in the MIPS TLB lookup
		loop. Seems to work both for R3000 and non-R3000.
20061003	Continuing a little on SH emulation (adding more control
		registers; mini-cleanup of memory_sh.c).
20061004	Beginning on a dev_rtc, a clock/timer device for the test
		machines; also adding a demo, and some documentation.
		Fixing a bug in SH "mov.w @(disp,pc),Rn" (the result wasn't
		sign-extended), and adding the addc and ldtlb instructions.
20061005	Contining on SH emulation: virtual to physical address
		translation, and a skeleton exception mechanism.
20061006	Adding more SH instructions (various loads and stores, rte,
		negc, muls.w, various privileged register-move instructions).
20061007	More SH instructions: various move instructions, trapa, div0s,
		float, fdiv, ftrc.
		Continuing on dev_rtc; removing the rtc demo.
20061008	Adding a dummy Dreamcast PROM module. (Homebrew Dreamcast
		programs using KOS libs need this.)
		Adding more SH instructions: "stc vbr,rn", rotl, rotr, fsca,
		fmul, fadd, various floating-point moves, etc. A 256-byte
		demo for Dreamcast runs :-)
20061012	Adding the SH "lds Rm,pr" and bsr instructions.
20061013	More SH instructions: "sts fpscr,rn", tas.b, and some more
		floating point instructions, cmp/str, and more moves.
		Adding a dummy dev_pvr (Dreamcast graphics controller).
20061014	Generalizing the expression evaluator (used in the built-in
		debugger) to support parentheses and +-*/%^&|.
20061015	Removing the experimental tlb index hint code in
		mips_memory_v2p.c, since it didn't really have any effect.
20061017	Minor SH updates; adding the "sts pr,Rn", fcmp/gt, fneg,
		frchg, and some other instructions. Fixing missing sign-
		extension in an 8-bit load instruction.
20061019	Adding a simple dev_dreamcast_rtc.
		Implementing memory-mapped access to the SH ITLB/UTLB arrays.
20061021	Continuing on various SH and Dreamcast things: sh4 timers,
		debug messages for dev_pvr, fixing some virtual address
		translation bugs, adding the bsrf instruction.
		The NetBSD/dreamcast GENERIC_MD kernel now reaches userland :)
		Adding a dummy dev_dreamcast_asic.c (not really useful yet).
		Implementing simple support for Store Queues.
		Beginning on the PVR Tile Accelerator.
20061022	Generalizing the PVR framebuffer to support off-screen drawing,
		multiple bit-depths, etc. (A small speed penalty, but most
		likely worth it.)
		Adding more SH instructions (mulu.w, fcmp/eq, fsub, fmac,
		fschg, and some more); correcting bugs in "fsca" and "float".
20061024	Adding the SH ftrv (matrix * vector) instruction. Marcus
		Comstedt's "tatest" example runs :) (wireframe only).
		Correcting disassembly for SH floating point instructions that
		use the xd* registers.
		Adding the SH fsts instruction.
		In memory_device_dyntrans_access(), only the currently used
		range is now invalidated, and not the entire device range.
20061025	Adding a dummy AVR32 cpu mode skeleton.
20061026	Various Dreamcast updates; beginning on a Maple bus controller.
20061027	Continuing on the Maple bus. A bogus Controller, Keyboard, and
		Mouse can now be detected by NetBSD and KOS homebrew programs.
		Cleaning up the SH4 Timer Management Unit, and beginning on
		SH4 interrupts.
		Implementing the Dreamcast SYSASIC.
20061028	Continuing on the SYSASIC.
		Adding the SH fsqrt instruction.
		memory_sh.c now actually scans the ITLB.
		Fixing a bug in dev_sh4.c, related to associative writes into
		the memory-mapped UTLB array. NetBSD/dreamcast now reaches
		userland stably, and prints the "Terminal type?" message :-]
		Implementing enough of the Dreamcast keyboard to make NetBSD
		accept it for input.
		Enabling SuperH for stable (non-development) builds.
		Adding NetBSD/dreamcast to the documentation, although it
		doesn't support root-on-nfs yet.
20061029	Changing usleep(1) calls in the debugger to to usleep(10000)
		(according to Brian Foley, this makes GXemul run better on
		MacOS X).
		Making the Maple "Controller" do something (enough to barely
		interact with dcircus.elf).
20061030-31	Some progress on the PVR. More test programs start running (but
		with strange output).
		Various other SH4-related updates.
20061102	Various Dreamcast and SH4 updates; more KOS demos run now.
20061104	Adding a skeleton dev_mb8696x.c (the Dreamcast's LAN adapter).
20061105	Continuing on the MB8696x; NetBSD/dreamcast detects it as mbe0.
		Testing for the release.

		eqc, rev, ajw, stl, stlf, sthf, sub, ldnl, ldnlp, ldpi, move,
		wcnt, add, bcnt).
		Adding more SPARC instructions (andcc, addcc, bl, rdpr).
		Progress on the igsfb framebuffer used by NetBSD/netwinder.
		Enabling 8-bit fills in dev_fb.
		NetBSD/netwinder 3.0.1 can now run from a disk image :-)
20060724	Cleanup/performance fix for 64-bit virtual translation table
		updates (by removing the "timestamp" stuff). A full NetBSD/pmax
		3.0.1 install for R4400 has dropped from 667 seconds to 584 :)
		Fixing the igsfb "almost vga" color (it is 24-bit, not 18-bit).
		Adding some MIPS instruction combinations (3*lw, and 3*addu).
		The 8048 keyboard now turns off interrupt enable between the
		KBR_ACK and the KBR_RSTDONE, to work better with Linux 2.6.
		Not causing PPC DEC interrupts if PPC_NO_DEC is set for a
		specific CPU; NetBSD/bebox gets slightly further than before.
		Adding some more SPARC instructions: branches, udiv.
20060725	Refreshing dev_pckbc.c a little.
		Cleanups for the SH emulation mode, and adding the first
		"compact" (16-bit) instructions: various simple movs, nop,
		shll, stc, or, ldc.
20060726	Adding dummy "pcn" (AMD PCnet NIC) PCI glue.
20060727	Various cleanups; removing stuff from cpu.h, such as
		running_translated (not really meaningful anymore), and
		page flags (breaking into the debugger clears all translations
		anyway).
		Minor MIPS instruction combination updates.
20060807	Expanding the 3*sw and 3*lw MIPS instruction combinations to
		work with 2* and 4* too, resulting in a minor performance gain.
		Implementing a usleep hack for the RM52xx/MIPS32/MIPS64 "wait"
		instruction (when emulating 1 cpu).
20060808	Experimenting with some more MIPS instruction combinations.
		Implementing support for showing a (hardcoded 12x22) text
		cursor in igsfb.
20060809	Simplifying the NetBSD/evbmips (Malta) install instructions
		somewhat (by using a NetBSD/pmax ramdisk install kernel).
20060812	Experimenting more with the MIPS 'wait' instruction.
		PCI configuration register writes can now be handled, which
		allow PCI IDE controllers to work with NetBSD/Malta 3.0.1 and
		NetBSD/cobalt 3.0.1. (Previously only NetBSD 2.1 worked.)
20060813	Updating dev_gt.c based on numbers from Alec Voropay, to enable
		Linux 2.6 to use PCI on Malta.
		Continuing on Algor interrupt stuff.
20060814	Adding support for routing ISA interrupts to two different
		interrupts, making it possible to run NetBSD/algor :-)
20060814-15	Testing for the release.

20060406	Removing the temporary FreeBSD/arm hack in dev_ns16550.c and
		replacing it with a better fix from Olivier Houchard.
20060407	A remote debugger (gdb or ddd) can now start and stop the
		emulator using the GDB remote serial protocol, and registers
		and memory can be read. MIPS only for now.
20060408	More GDB progress: single-stepping also works, and also adding

		Continuing on the delay-slot-across-page-boundary issue.
20060412	Minor update: beginning to add support for the SPARC target

20060415	Adding "magic trap" instructions so that PROM calls can be
		software emulated in MIPS dyntrans.
		Adding more MIPS dyntrans instructions (ddiv, dadd) and
		fixing another bug in dmult.
20060416	More MIPS dyntrans progress: adding [d]addi, movn, movz, dsllv,

		preliminary interrupt support, and various other updates and
		bugfixes.
20060417	Adding more SPARC instructions (add, sub, sll[x], sra[x],
		srl[x]), and useful SPARC header definitions.
		Adding the first (trivial) x86/AMD64 dyntrans instructions (nop,
		cli/sti, stc/clc, std/cld, simple mov, inc ax). Various other
		x86 updates related to variable instruction length stuff.
		Adding unaligned loads/stores to the MIPS dyntrans mode (but
		still using the pre-dyntrans (slow) imlementation).
20060419	Fixing a MIPS dyntrans exception-in-delay-slot bug.
		Removing the old "show opcode statistics" functionality, since
		it wasn't really useful and isn't implemented for dyntrans.
		Single-stepping (or running with instruction trace) now looks
		ok with dyntrans with delay-slot architectures.
20060420	Minor hacks (removing the -B command line option when compiled
		for non-bintrans, and some other very minor updates).
		Adding (slow) MIPS dyntrans load-linked/store-conditional.
20060422	Applying fixes for bugs discovered by Nils Weller's nwcc
		(static DEC memmap => now per machine, and adding an extern
		keyword in cpu_arm_instr.c).
		Finally found one of the MIPS dyntrans bugs that I've been
		looking for (copy/paste spelling error BIG vs LITTLE endian in
		cpu_mips_instr_loadstore.c for 16-bit fast stores).
		FINALLY found the major MIPS dyntrans bug: slti vs sltiu
		signed/unsigned code in cpu_mips_instr.c. :-)
		Adding more MIPS dyntrans instructions (lwc1, swc1, bgezal[l],
		ctc1, tlt[u], tge[u], tne, beginning on rdhwr).
		NetBSD/hpcmips can now reach userland when using dyntrans :-)
		Adding some more x86 dyntrans instructions.
		Finally removed the old Alpha-specific virtual memory code,
		and replaced it with the generic 64-bit version.
		Beginning to add disassembly support for SPECIAL3 MIPS opcodes.
20060423	Continuing on the delay-slot-across-page-boundary issue;
		adding an end_of_page2 ic slot (like I had planned before, but
		had removed for some reason).
		Adding a quick-and-dirty fallback to legacy coprocessor 1
		code (i.e. skipping dyntrans implementation for now).
		NetBSD/hpcmips and NetBSD/pmax (when running on an emulated
		R4400) can now be installed and run. :-)  (Many bugs left
		to fix, though.)
		Adding more MIPS dyntrans instructions: madd[u], msub[u].
		Cleaning up the SPECIAL2 vs R5900/TX79/C790 "MMI" opcode
		maps somewhat (disassembly and dyntrans instruction decoding).
20060424	Adding an isa_revision field to mips_cpu_types.h, and making
		sure that SPECIAL3 opcodes cause Reserved Instruction
		exceptions on MIPS32/64 revisions lower than 2.
		Adding the SPARC 'ba', 'call', 'jmpl/retl', 'and', and 'xor'
		instructions.
20060425	Removing the -m command line option ("run at most x 
		instructions") and -T ("single_step_on_bad_addr"), because
		they never worked correctly with dyntrans anyway.
		Freshening up the man page.
20060428	Adding more MIPS dyntrans instructions: bltzal[l], idle.
		Enabling MIPS dyntrans compare interrupts.
20060429	FINALLY found the weird dyntrans bug, causing NetBSD etc. to
		behave strangely: some floating point code (conditional
		coprocessor branches) could not be reused from the old
		non-dyntrans code. The "quick-and-dirty fallback" only appeared
		to work. Fixing by implementing bc1* for MIPS dyntrans.
		More MIPS instructions: [d]sub, sdc1, ldc1, dmtc1, dmfc1, cfc0.
		Freshening up MIPS floating point disassembly appearance.
20060430	Continuing on C790/R5900/TX79 disassembly; implementing 128-bit
		"por" and "pextlw".
20060504	Disabling -u (userland emulation) unless compiled as unstable
		development version.
		Beginning on freshening up the testmachine include files,
		to make it easier to reuse those files (placing them in
		src/include/testmachine/), and beginning on a set of "demos"
		or "tutorials" for the testmachine functionality.
		Minor updates to the MIPS GDB remote protocol stub.
		Refreshing doc/experiments.html and gdb_remote.html.
		Enabling Alpha emulation in the stable release configuration,
		even though no guest OSes for Alpha can run yet.
20060505	Adding a generic 'settings' object, which will contain
		references to settable variables (which will later be possible
		to access using the debugger).
20060506	Updating dev_disk and corresponding demo/documentation (and
		switching from SCSI to IDE disk types, so it actually works
		with current test machines :-).
20060510	Adding a -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE hack for 64-bit Linux hosts,
		so that fseeko() doesn't give a warning.
		Updating the section about how dyntrans works (the "runnable
		IR") in doc/intro.html.
		Instruction updates (some x64=1 checks, some more R5900
		dyntrans stuff: better mul/mult separation from MIPS32/64,
		adding ei and di).
		Updating MIPS cpuregs.h to a newer one (from NetBSD).
		Adding more MIPS dyntrans instructions: deret, ehb.
20060514	Adding disassembly and beginning implementation of SPARC wr
		and wrpr instructions.
20060515	Adding a SUN SPARC machine mode, with dummy SS20 and Ultra1
		machines. Adding the 32-bit "rd psr" instruction.
20060517	Disassembly support for the general SPARC rd instruction.
		Partial implementation of the cmp (subcc) instruction.
		Some other minor updates (making sure that R5900 processors
		start up with the EIE bit enabled, otherwise Linux/playstation2
		receives no interrupts).
20060519	Minor MIPS updates/cleanups.
20060521	Moving the MeshCube machine into evbmips; this seems to work
		reasonably well with a snapshot of a NetBSD MeshCube kernel.
		Cleanup/fix of MIPS config0 register initialization.
20060529	Minor MIPS fixes, including a sign-extension fix to the
		unaligned load/store code, which makes NetBSD/pmax on R3000
		work better with dyntrans. (Ultrix and Linux/DECstation still
		don't work, though.)
20060530	Minor updates to the Alpha machine mode: adding an AlphaBook
		mode, an LCA bus (forwarding accesses to an ISA bus), etc.
20060531	Applying a bugfix for the MIPS dyntrans sc[d] instruction from
		Ondrej Palkovsky. (Many thanks.)
20060601	Minifix to allow ARM immediate msr instruction to not give
		an error for some valid values.
		More Alpha updates.
20060602	Some minor Alpha updates.
20060603	Adding the Alpha cmpbge instruction. NetBSD/alpha prints its
		first boot messages :-) on an emulated Alphabook 1.
20060612	Minor updates; adding a dev_ether.h include file for the
		testmachine ether device. Continuing the hunt for the dyntrans
		bug which makes Linux and Ultrix on DECstation behave
		strangely... FINALLY found it! It seems to be related to
		invalidation of the translation cache, on tlbw{r,i}. There
		also seems to be some remaining interrupt-related problems.
20060614	Correcting the implementation of ldc1/sdc1 for MIPS dyntrans
		(so that it uses 16 32-bit registers if the FR bit in the
		status register is not set).
20060616	REMOVING BINTRANS COMPLETELY!
		Removing the old MIPS interpretation mode.
		Removing the MFHILO_DELAY and instruction delay stuff, because
		they wouldn't work with dyntrans anyway.
20060617	Some documentation updates (adding "NetBSD-archive" to some
		URLs, and new Debian/DECstation installation screenshots).
		Removing the "tracenull" and "enable-caches" configure options.
		Improving MIPS dyntrans performance somewhat (only invalidate
		translations if necessary, on writes to the entryhi register,
		instead of doing it for all cop0 writes).
20060618	More cleanup after the removal of the old MIPS emulation.
		Trying to fix the MIPS dyntrans performance bugs/bottlenecks;
		only semi-successful so far (for R3000).
20060620	Minor update to allow clean compilation again on Tru64/Alpha.
20060622	MIPS cleanup and fixes (removing the pc_last stuff, which
		doesn't make sense with dyntrans anyway, and fixing a cross-
		page-delay-slot-with-exception case in end_of_page).
		Removing the old max_random_cycles_per_chunk stuff, and the
		concept of cycles vs instructions for MIPS emulation.
		FINALLY found and fixed the bug which caused NetBSD/pmax
		clocks to behave strangely (it was a load to the zero register,
		which was treated as a NOP; now it is treated as a load to a
		dummy scratch register).
20060623	Increasing the dyntrans chunk size back to
		N_SAFE_DYNTRANS_LIMIT, instead of N_SAFE_DYNTRANS_LIMIT/2.
		Preparing for a quick release, even though there are known
		bugs, and performance for non-R3000 MIPS emulation is very
		poor. :-/
		Reverting to half the dyntrans chunk size again, because
		NetBSD/cats seemed less stable with full size chunks. :(
		NetBSD/sgimips 3.0 can now run :-)  (With release 0.3.8, only
		NetBSD/sgimips 2.1 worked, not 3.0.)

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.

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.

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.

20050408	Some minor updates to the wdc. Linux now doesn't complain
		anymore if a disk is non-present.
20050409	Various minor fixes (a bintrans bug, and some other things).
		The wdc seems to work with Playstation2 emulation, but there
		is a _long_ annoying delay when disks are detected.
		Fixing a really important bintrans bug (when devices and RAM
		are mixed within 4KB pages), which was triggered with
		NetBSD/playstation2 kernels.
20050410	Adding a dummy dev_ps2_ether (just so that NetBSD doesn't
		complain as much during bootup).
		Symbols starting with '$' are now ignored.
		Renaming dev_ps2_ohci.c to dev_ohci.c, etc.
20050411	Moving the bintrans-cache-isolation check from cpu_mips.c to
		cpu_mips_coproc.c. (I thought this would give a speedup, but
		it's not noticable.)
		Better playstation2 sbus interrupt code.
		Skip ahead many ticks if the count register is read manually.
		(This increases the speed of delay-loops that simply read
		the count register.)
20050412	Updates to the playstation2 timer/interrupt code.
		Some other minor updates.
20050413	NetBSD/cobalt runs from a disk image :-) including userland;
		updating the documentation on how to install NetBSD/cobalt
		using NetBSD/pmax (!).
		Some minor bintrans updates (no real speed improvement) and
		other minor updates (playstation2 now uses the -o options).
20050414	Adding a dummy x86 (and AMD64) mode.
20050415	Adding some (32-bit and 16-bit) x86 instructions.
		Adding some initial support for non-SCSI, non-IDE floppy
		images. (The x86 mode can boot from these, more or less.)
		Moving the devices/ and include/ directories to src/devices/
		and src/include/, respectively.
20050416	Continuing on the x86 stuff. (Adding pc_bios.c and some simple
		support for software interrupts in 16-bit mode.)
20050417	Ripping out most of the x86 instruction decoding stuff, trying
		to rewrite it in a cleaner way.
		Disabling some of the least working CPU families in the
		configure script (sparc, x86, alpha, hppa), so that they are
		not enabled by default.
20050418	Trying to fix the bug which caused problems when turning on
		and off bintrans interactively, by flushing the bintrans cache
		whenever bintrans is manually (re)enabled.
20050419	Adding the 'lswi' ppc instruction.
		Minor updates to the x86 instruction decoding.
20050420	Renaming x86 register name indices from R_xx to X86_R_xx (this
		makes building on Tru64 nicer).
20050422	Adding a check for duplicate MIPS TLB entries on tlbwr/tlbwi.
20050427	Adding screenshots to guestoses.html.
		Some minor fixes and testing for the next release.
