A bunch of new stuff has been added to master since the last version, time to release a new one? Especially I'd like to see qemu get a seabios update, and anthony prefers a release instead of a git snapshot for that.
What's left in order to enable CONFIG_AHCI by default too? I'd really prefer not to carry a custom config for QEMU if it's possible.
I'm okay with defaulting AHCI on. The 32bit trampolining could theoretically be a problem, but there have been no trouble reports to date.
Maybe this is a good time to coordinate a release around the next QEMU release too. I'm guessing that October would be a pretty good time to freeze on a new SeaBIOS so if there was an October release, that would work very well for us.
I'm okay with that. We could probably arrange a release even sooner.
I think that AHCI on would be good. What about ATA DMA and ATA 32bit PIO?
ATA DMA caused me a bit of pain this morning, it didn't want to work.
32-bit PIO is probably mostly-safe these days.
