At first, I'd like to make it sure that it's not dead and I'm still
working on it.
I've been waiting for stabilizing of other related thing like
memory API(mostly done?), irq routing cleaning up, QOM etc...
I don't want to catch them up so frequently as I don't see any time soon

I'll push the latest my patches to my git repo, but I can't promise when. 
Sorry for inconvenience.
