Wow, thanks a lot! Unfortunately suse is offline right now, so I can't try it out. But once I get access to my dev box again, I'll let you know! :)

> 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?

I think that would make sense, yeah.
