If this is the

mc146818rtc rather m48t59 and so there is going to have to be a qemu build
patch required here too.
Actually, while mc146818rtc is linked in, it's not used (there are
some machines that have similar device, so that's why it still hangs
around). m48t59 is on ebus.
Maybe it's time to pick a specific real machine type instead of 'Sun4u
platform'. Something that is not too far from what we have now, with
PC-like hardware. Is Netra-T1 OK?
To be honest, I'm not really bothered as long as Solaris 9 and above
will work, and I can migrate an existing drive image from physical to
virtual (though this wouldn't necessarily have to be with the same drivers).
