Hi Alex,

I've just committed a fix which enables us to attempt a kernel boot 
before attempting a normal "load & go" boot which I think should solve this.

I did also notice in arch/ppc/qemu/main.c that a kernel boot is only 
attempted if the QEMU boot device is set to 'm' - surely this check 
should be removed, and a kernel boot attempted unconditionally as long 
as all the sanity tests in check_preloaded_kernel() pass?
