[coreboot] Questions about using coreboot riscv with qemu

This is my first time using a mailing list btw, sorry.
I was wondering how I could test the images I have built with `make
riscv-crossgcc && make` using qemu.
I tried running qemu-system-riscv64(the one gotten from the riscv-linux
port), with the name of the image produced(coreboot.rom), and it did
qemu-system-riscv64: Trying to execute code outside RAM or ROM at
This usually means one of the following happened:
(1) You told QEMU to execute a kernel for the wrong machine type, and it
crashed on startup (eg trying to run a raspberry pi kernel on a
versatilepb QEMU machine)
(2) You didn't give QEMU a kernel or BIOS filename at all, and QEMU
executed a ROM full of no-op instructions until it fell off the end
(3) Your guest kernel has a bug and crashed by jumping off into nowhere
This is almost always one of the first two, so check your command line
and that you are using the right type of kernel for this machine.
If you think option (3) is likely then you can try debugging your guest
with the -d debug options; in particular -d guest_errors will cause the
log to include a dump of the guest register state at this point.
Execution cannot continue; stopping here.
I also tried this using the -bios flag, and by using the make-spike-elf
script with the -bios flag, and I still got nothing.
It would be really nice if somebody could help me :).
