Yes. The Milax loader tries to set up an alarm callback to display a
twirly baton during the loading stage, so that would be a good test. Is
it useful? Hmmm.... ;)
It just struck me that it would be a good test for SPARC64 interrupt
handling in Qemu as it's something that can easily be tested from OpenBIOS.
