Please don't ignore this problem, it won't go away by itself. Since you haven't demonstrated so far that the dummy-pci patch breaks anything I assume it either works or you haven't tested it at all. If the latter then why are you so reluctant to even test it and consider it as a fix until a more complete fix you're happy with is available sometimes in the future (does not seem to happen for three years so it's not somethiung I expect until the next QEMU release). We still have a chance to fix this for QEMU 6.2 but if you don't do anything about it it will stop working for those already using MorphOS with mac99. Do you plan to do anything about this or at least please give an explanation why it can't be fixed for 6.2 if you decided it won't be fixed.

I'm not ignoring this problem at all: for the reasons previously mentioned in this thread I am not accepting the dummy-pci patch, and so haven't spent any time testing it. I don't see how repeating myself in this reply once again will make any difference. I also stand by my offer to provide help/advice on creating the real /pci node if you are willing to investigate the NetBSD issue.
Given that MorphOS has never worked with vanilla OpenBIOS then there is no regression here to warrant breaking the soft freeze for QEMU 6.2.
